Reviews - What do customers think about El caballo de oro?

The Panama Railroad  Jul 12, 2008
The construction of the Panama Railroad (1847-1855) is another story of man's courage and ambition to wrestle from the tropical jungle a path between the seas. After eight years of sacrifice, $8 million and thousands of lives taken by the heat, humidity, incessant rain and tropical diseases such as yellow fever, malaria and dysentery, the railway was completed in time to profit from the hordes that crossed the isthmus during the Gold Rush to California. But what makes this book special is the way Juan David Morgan develops an enduring love story that survives the attacks of nature, ambition and politics. The Spanish prose is elegant and refreshing, and deserves a quality translation soon.
What an easy way to learn over one of the most significant constructions in america   Jan 12, 2007
It is a romantic history, involving history and determination of one of the toughest projects to achieve in history.

Great and easy book to read.
