Описание: "Did you know that it took ten million bricks to build the Empire State Building?
Did you know that residents of the John Hancock Center sometimes have to call down to the doorman to find out the weather on the streets below?
Did you know a building in Dubai is planned to be nearly one half mile high?"
In "Skyscraper," Lynn Curlee delves into one of man's endless fascinations -- building as high in the sky as possible.
From the the Empire State Building to the Chrysler Building, to the Sears and Hancock Towers, to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, to the World Trade Center, Curlee captures all the drama, excitement, and tragedy of man's attempt to reach ever closer to the clouds. "Skyscraper" details the history of these monuments to ambition, science, and curiosity, beginning with their origins at the Pyramid of Giza and the Eiffel Tower and then moving to New York (the skyscraper capital of the world), Chicago, Boston, and finally to the skyward expansion that is spreading across the globe.

Описание: "The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The Colossus of Rhodes. The Great Pyra-mid at Giza. For centuries these names have inspired wonder and mystery. They are but three of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Most of these masterpieces of human achievement have long since crumbled into dust. But their legacy survives, and these triumphs of human vision, architecture, and creativity have become the stuff of legends." In the "Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, " Lynn Curlee ponders the questions that have fascinated researchers and archaeologists for decades: What purpose did these structures have for the societies that built them? How did they achieve the means necessary to construct such intricate and innovative temples and statues? Mr. Curlee investigates and illustrates how these Seven Wonders must have appeared at their peak. With extraordinary paintings and a moving narrative, Mr. Curlee tells the story of some of man s greatest feats and explores the timeless desire of cultures to leave a permanent mark on the Earth."

Описание: Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free... Follow the journey of the Statue of Liberty from 1865 to today as it goes from being a mere glimmer in the eyes of two Frenchmen to becoming a colossal gift to the United States, a gesture of friendship between the two nations, a monument to the first hundred years of American independence, and a symbol of liberty for all.
