TUNNEL THROUGH THE DEEPS

Berkley Medallion paperback, May 1974. Cover painting by
Richard M. Powers.

"A Transatlantic Tunnel, Hurrah! 
The time is the 1970's - sort of. The place is Earth - in a way. The project: build a tunnel from England to her colonies in America, under the Atlantic Ocean! Captain Gus Washington, engineer extraordinary, wrestles with awesome problems to complete the tunnel and redeem his family's name. For Gus is a direct descendant of the famous traitor of long ago, George Washington, who led a failed rebellion in the 1700's. Harry Harrison, that incomparable creator of alternate worlds, has  created a brilliant double exposure of history and a typically superb reading experience."
