About this title
Exploring the history of travel by ship from the 1800s to the present day, this book which is one of a series, describes the impact ships have had on the way we live. It tells the story of this oldest form of long-distance transport. The ancient Egyptians sailed the first wooden ships, and Roman merchants, Viking raiders and great explorers such as Christopher Columbus all depended on sailing ships to cross the oceans. Twentieth-century ships are larger and faster. Luxury ocean liners carry passengers around the world and high-speed ferries powered by jet engines can cover water faster than ever before.
