Isambard Kingdom Brunel changed the world as we know it. He was responsible for building the Great Western Railway main line, introducing regular steamship travel across the Atlantic, building the first tunnel under a major river, and constructing docks, harbors, and bridges that enabled Britain to expand and grow as the powerhouse of the world. Without his foresight and imagination, it is possible that 19th-century Britain might have been very different. He truly helped to make Britain "Great." There have been many books written about the man himself, but this book concentrates upon the structures, buildings, and legacy of Brunel, introducing the reader to the man himself and embarking upon a tour around Britain, revealing the many locations with a Brunel connection.
