Product description

Review

"Mr. Rolt at the full height of his powers . . . animates the scene with life just as though some old print started out of its pages." --John Betjeman

"Mr. Rolt writes faithfully and thoroughly of Telford's work and achievements. He brings to their interpretation the outlook of an engineer." --Sunday Times

"Mr. Rolt realizes from the start that what makes Telford important is what he did, not what he was . . . an original writer on fresh themes; he knows his subject inside out." --Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

L T C Rolt wrote a large number of books, a number of which are now regarded as classics. He wrote biographies on the great British engineers, such as Brunel and the Stephensons, as well as the story of his exploration of England's canals, Narrow Boat.
