BUILDING BOSTON: STORIES OF ARCHITECTURAL AND ENGINEERING FEATS. Ted Clarke. Schiffer Publishing Ltd., Atglen, 2016. 208 pp. with 153 ills. (102 col.). 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780764351129 In English.
Publisher's description: Take an expertly guided tour of Boston's historic landmarks and epic past. Follow the history of the Boston Marathon and the architectural gems that grace the Copley Square/Back Bay area where the race ends. Take a deep dive into the subway dig. Learn how fabled landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted figured out how to put a salt marsh inside the city to prevent flooding, paving the way for today's green ribbon of parks. Interwoven with anecdotes about landmarks such as the Boston Common, the Boston Red Sox Fenway Park, and the Esplanade are observations about the character of a city that took the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing in stride. Perfect for both armchair reading and for use as a unique visitors' guide.
