American roads are about destiny as much as they are about
destinations. They link us to each other today, but back at
beginning of the twentieth century when the national road system
was just starting, the success of our roads undeniably linked the
nation with its destiny, its history, and its unique future.
Millions of motorists get into their vehicles every day to go to
work or school or any one of hundreds of other places. But most of
us don't think about the roads; we just jump in our cars and go. We
don't give much thought to the people and the hard work and grit it
took-and continues to take-to build and maintain these essential
arteries that we take for granted. This book will change our
perspective. Our roads today are a long way from the Model T days,
when the early contractors used mules and fresnos to build roads
and bridges that literally got people up out of the mud and across
uncrossable rivers. But it didn't happen overnight. In Connecting
Texas, readers will get to know the inspiring and entertaining
stories of the giants and the ordinary people who gave Texas a road
system that is the envy of the country
