I took a road trip recently with my family, and my Dad had The Great Bridge on audio book.  It's really quite interesting and although it's historical and factual.  It's about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, and many of the descriptions started to sound like something right out of one of our steampunk novels.  Like the underwater airlocked chambers that were built so the workers could dig to solid ground for the towers, to the process of stringing out the cables.

I recommend picking it up and taking a look.  The Great Bridge, by David McCullough
