    1. An alternative view of Oak Ridge, Tn. during the Manhattan Project I have read a few books on this subject, but what I enjoyed the most was reading the narrations of the people who were there, several who I know (or knew) personally. I came to Oak Ridge at the age of 9, and now in my 60's. Some are still living. I also love looking at the photos and trying to figure out where they were made. It was an amazing adventure for these young people!

    2. Oak RidgeThis is account of the work done in Oak Ridge,Tennessee for the Manhattan Project. You get a sense from the interviews what life was like in this secret colony from the secrecy to how cut off from the rest of the world everyone was.
