The Singing Wire (Lucky Luke)

  (Redirected from Le Fil qui chante)

Le Fil qui chante is a Lucky Luke adventure written by Goscinny and illustrated by Morris. It is the forty sixth book in the series and was originally published in French in the year 1977. The story is based on the historical feat of constructing the First Transcontinental Telegraph line connecting the American West and East coasts in 1861. The title, "The Singing Wire", refers both to "singing" of wires (caused by vortex shedding), and the transmission of communication (later voice) across electric cables.
