LibriVox recording of The Story of the Atlantic Telegraph, by Henry M. Read by Alex C. Cyrus W. Field had a dream: to link the Old World of Britain and Europe to that of the New World of North America by a telegraph cable stretching across the great Atlantic Ocean. It took him thirteen years, a lot of money, and many men and ships and cable to make it happen. He wanted to bring the world together and make it a smaller place to forge alliances and achieve peace. This is his story. Introduction by Alex C. The story of Cyrus W. Field, the first man who connected Europe and North America by means of a cable, to exchange messages using telegraphy.

The Atlantic Telegraph, said the late Chief Justice Chase, is the most wonderful achievement of civilization, and entitles its author to a distinguished rank among public benefactors. High upon that illustrious roll will his name be placed, and there will it remain while oceans divide, and telegraphs unite, mankind. The memory of such an achievement the world should not let die. The story of its varied fortunes reads like a tale of adventure. Is introduced to Cyrus W. Field, who conceives the Idea of a Telegraph across the Atlantic Ocean.
