Perhaps the most absorbingly interesting part of the book is the underground work that inspired the book’s title—Tigers Under the Turf. It is traditional that men who work in dirty, dangerous jobs building underground tunnels in hydro-electric projects are often referred to as Tigers! The Tunnelers work in a terrible environment, so they were given the exotic nom-de-plume of Tunnel Tigers. However, exotic was definitely not the word to describe the type of work, which was dangerous, dirty, unhealthy, strength sapping—not a challenge for the faint hearted.
