Traces the monumental efforts of the cleanup crew at the World Trade Center site, and discusses physical details of the collapse and deconstruction, the political factors that contributed, and the human side of the effort.
Selected as one of the best books of 2002 by "The New York Times," "San Francisco Chronicle," "Boston Globe," "Los Angeles Times," and "Chicago Sun-Times"
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, cacophonous democracy--Langewiesche reveals the unbuilding to be uniquely American and oddly inspiring, a portrait of resilience and ingenuity in the face of disaster.
