Strange monsters populate our landscape – Gigantic wheeled machines that scoop out hillsides, flatten earth for roadbeds, lift boxcars, and compact tons of garbage. At work, they are every bit as impressive as prehistoric dinosaurs – and far more useful. George Ancona has captured with his camera more than a dozen of these super- wheeled giants in the midst of their enormous labors. In text and captions he describes their functions, special features, and amazing strength. The result – a dramatic look at some of man’s most startling creations.
