For a century the Bath Iron Works has been building some of the finest, most powerful ships in the U.S. Navy. But now the Maine shipyard is facing mounting competition and a pressing need to modernize. The Yard captures this moment of change, and the end of an era, as old ways give way to new, through the eyes of the workers as they build and launch a U.S. Navy destroyer.

From the first cutting of steel to the destroyer's triumphant commissioning, Michael Sanders chronicles a world rich in danger, humor, and lore, offering not only a fascinating inside look at one of America's greatest shipyards, but a very human chronicle of a lost way of life.
