Abstract:

"The six films in this collection tell the story of how BPA and its federal partners worked to tame the Columbia River to bring power, irrigation, navigation and commerce to the Pacific Northwest through dams and transmission. They show the crucial role BPA played in supporting the U.S. war effort by providing abundant, low-cost hydropower for building ships and planes. These films offer you a trip through the challenging times of the Great Depression and World War II in the 1930s and '40s, and into a time of prosperity and change in the '50s"--Cover.
