The compelling story of the dramatic efforts to lay the Atlantic telegraph during the 1850s and 1860s, from the first failed attempts to the expedition that finally succeeded. An inconceivably audacious endeavor to overcome the forces of nature in the name of human progress and technology, the laying of the cable was to change forever our means of communication.

In this exceptionally researched book, Gillian Cookson reveals the people who dared, lost and profited from this vital progression.
