Denis Gardner has created a masterpiece bridge book. The photographs and historic information are wonderful and very engaging. The story of bridging Minnesota waters is fascinating to me and Denis did a great job in selecting historic photos and telling wonderful, short stories about many bridges that have come and gone through Minnesota's history.
