A science fiction novel of remarkable dramatic power and energy which describes and glorifies a giant engineering project to bore a submarine railway tunnel connecting the United States with Europe.

Compared to the dramatic impact of Kellermann's book, other novels about similar titanic undertakings are pale things indeed." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2316-9.
