Steel - Backbone of the Modern World
by Robert W. Gordon A WORLD without steel—try to imagine it! Without steel, the whole physical structure of the modern world would collapse. Lacking this one all-important substance, the civilization we know would cease to exist.

"Men who made civilization what it is today were not famous statesmen, conquerors or philosophers. They were—and are—men engaged in the mechanical sciences" BY LOWELL THOMAS OVER the airwaves comes a desperate appeal to the radio station at Nome. "For God's sake, send help, if you can. We're starving and dying. There's an epidemic. Almost everybody is flat in bed." "What do you need? Food?" "Food, yes, and milk. But above all, serum.

We won't go in to the trouble and danger he goes through. For one thing, it's an old story to Joe Crosson. He has done it before probably will have to do it again several times. The point at this moment is that he does it. An entire settlement in the frozen North is saved from extinction.
