This is a simple picture book that tells the story of the decision and building of the 19th century covered bridge designed by Lemuel Chenoweth. This bridge still stands and is used today in Philippi, Virginia, USA. A short and good story that gives some interesting American history and some basic knowledge of different bridge designs.
