Good background info on Panama Canal

Here's a link I saved some time ago and am gonna get a round to looking at now!

Lots of good info here on the canal - produced when we handed it off to Panama.

And the book is proving to be very interesting. . I think you're the one who recommended it to me, Glover?

Glad to hear you're enjoying the book Shillmac. I made it through the book before we went to Panama - but I never got around to reading all this info on the cnn site - guess you have to subscribe to cnn's "pipeline" to see an archived video like the interview with David McCullough.

Glover, I'm also reading the book on your recommendation. I'm surprised as to how much I'm enjoying it..I'm not one for history books. Not sure I'll finish by our 5/23 departure but I'm
giving it my best shot. Thanks for recommending it!

http://www.czbrats.com is a website maintained by Zonians. It has quite a lot of information about the Canal's history.
