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
