Built during the Great Depression, the dam would tame the flood-prone Colorado River southeast of Las Vegas―protecting cities and farms, generating cheap electricity to supply power to homes and industry, and providing work for thousands who desperately needed jobs. Across the Puddingstone Dam is a wonderful book about how Charlotte Tucker, future mother of Caroline Quiner, who is the future mother of Laura Ingalls, grows up in her rapidly expanding town in the East.
