Descripción

This riveting, true account of the 1929 race to build New York City's tallest skyscraper evokes the glory of an exciting time long past.

The Roaring Twenties were all about ambition, and New York embodied this mentality more than any other place in the world. In the spirit of the times, Walter Chrysler (of the Chrysler Building) and young financier George Ohrstrom (of the Manhattan Bank Building) competed to erect a structure that would reach to the skies. Behind it all were two brilliant architects, two men with a common past, but very different visions for the future.

Every bit as riveting as the best fiction, Higher takes fascinating characters and throws them into an extraordinary setting. The result is an unforgettable story filled with rich anecdotes and astounding feats.
