Galloping Gertie - The True Story of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapse By Amanda Abler
This compelling nonfiction picture book captures the story of the infamous collapse of the first Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State.
The story of Galloping Gertie, the first Tacoma Narrows Bridge, is captured through the eyes of a young boy who not only watches the bridge being built, but also witnesses its spectacular collapse not long after the bridge is opened.
Author Amanda Abler tells the bridge’s dramatic story in a factual and engaging way that makes the science behind the collapse approachable to young readers.
In addition to the narrative, the book concludes with a deeper look into why the bridge collapsed and how engineers continue to learn from this infamous engineering failure.
