This story, penned by the renowned writer Emily Mindlin (1900-1981), delves into the narrative of an elderly man who ventures to witness the construction of the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station, the largest hydroelectric power station on the Dnieper River. The initial Russian edition of this work was published in 1933.
The construction of the station took place in two phases. DniproHES-1 was initially erected between 1927 and 1932 but was unfortunately destroyed during World War II in order to impede the progress of the advancing German forces crossing the river. It was subsequently rebuilt between 1944 and 1950.
The illustrations for this book were crafted by the Ukrainian illustrator Lev Kaplan (1899-1972).

OCLC locates one copy of this edition in the McGill University Library (Canada).
