country and, unknowingly, paved the way for the most gigantic
engineering and construction feat known to civilization the
Panama Canal opening a channel of commerce to the vast Pa

Balboa did not know it, but he took the first steps that made a
beaten pathway for thousands of satisfied patrons who visit this
store each day to supply every need for home and self.
