Synopsis

Who Was Isambard Kingdom Brunel by Amanda Mitchison

The son of a French engineer, Kingdom's first notable achievement was the part he played with his father in planning the Thames Tunnel from Rotherhithe to Wapping, completed in 1843. He was responsible for the design of several famous ships but the work for which he is probably best remembered is his construction of a network of tunnels, bridges and viaducts for the Great Western Railway.This documentary-style book recounts Kingdom's life in an absorbing, easy to read narrative that brings history to life in an wonderful and accessible way to children.
