Summary: Within days after September 11, 2001, William Langewiesche had secured unique, unrestricted, round-the-clock access to the World Trade Center site. American Ground is a tour of this intense, ephemeral world and those who improvised the recovery effort day by day, and in the process reinvented themselves, discovering unknown strengths and weaknesses. In all of its aspects--emotionalism, impulsiveness, opportunism, territoriality, resourcefulness, and fundamental, caco ...show morephonous democracy--Langewiesche reveals the unbuilding to be uniquely American and oddly inspiring, a portrait of resilience and ingenuity in the face of disaster. ...show less

218 pp.; 22 cm. With a New Afterword by the Author. Tight, clean copy. Age toning. CONTENTS: The inner world -- Rush to recover -- Dance of the dinosaurs -- Afterword to the paperback edition. "At the ...show more center of the book is the team of engineers, many of them instrumental in building the towers, who now must collaborate in the sad task of disassembling them. Their responses are as dramatic and unpredictable as the shifting pile of rubble and the surrounding 'slurry wall' that constantly threatens to collapse, potentially flooding a large part of underground Manhattan. They are also emotional and territorial, as firemen, police, widows, and officials attempt to claim the tragedy--and the difficult work of extracting the rubble and the thousands of dead buried there--as their own." - Publisher. ...show less
