Brunel in the West by Paul White

The great engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel had a number of West Country associations. His maternal grandfather was a Plymouth naval contractor, his first engineering successes were in Bristol, where his pioneering steamship the SS Great Britain is now preserved, and the railways he engineered connected first Bristol then Exeter, Plymouth and Cornwall to the national railway network. This book is a brief biography, concentrating on the West Country aspects of his life.
