Iron and Steel
From Thor's Hammer to the Space ShuttleBook - 2003
Ancient people of the Near East were the first to discover how to turn iron ore into wrought iron and then to fashion this sturdy metal into tools, weapons, and other implements. Later, blacksmiths learned to make iron into steel. In IRON AND STEEL: FROM THOR'S HAMMER TO THE SPACE SHUTTLE, Kassinger covers the history of iron and steel from early times to the present. She also relates some of the myths associated with these materials and explains the science behind their production and use.
