Description
In 1920s America, life is hard, and many people are out of work. But you have the chance to work on a truly massive building project: a giant dam that will provide power and water for years to come, and prevent the devastating floods caused by the Colorado River.

Does being a Ninja Warrior or a Pony Express Rider sound fun and exciting to you? Get ready to discover the not-so-pretty truth! In this lively series, YOU are the main character in some of history's goriest, darkest, and most horrific moments. Hilarious illustrations, captions, and sidebars leave no doubt that you simply wouldn't want to be there.
