Challenging the Canyon: A Family Man Builds A Dam brings a new dimension to the oft-told story of the construction of the Shoshone Dam (Buffalo Bill Dam) near Cody, Wyoming. While a great deal has been known of the construction history of the concrete dam which was the tallest of its time, only recently has the story of a family living at the construction site been unearthed.

Author Beryl Churchill’s connection with the family of constructing engineer D.W. Cole has brought to light a treasure trove of photographs, letters and the details of life of the Cole family, who lived in the Shoshone Canyon from 1905 to 1909, during most of the construction.

The book contains 51 never-published photographs, both of the Cole family and the construction project. In addition, letters between husband and wife, and between father and daughters reveal an affectionate, intelligent family and shed new light on the daily life of a turn-of-the-century family experiencing the American West firsthand.
