About this title


The Illustrated Living History series offers a close look at how Native Americans, explorers, and colonists lived their everyday lives in the America of the 16th-19th centuries. Each title in the series, especially created for grades 5 to 10, has been carefully researched for authentic detail and accurately illustrated to help young readers have fun discovering America's earliest history and development.

From the Back Cover:

This unique volume chronicles the 150-year history of the tall ships - those incredible sailing vessels that sweep majestically across the sea, their masts piercing the sky, their canvas swelling with the wind. The author explains carefully how these ships were built, how they operate, and what it is like to live and work aboard them. He also recounts the harsh reality of life aboard nineteenth-century packets and clippers, the proud predecessors of today's sailing ships. He illustrates every facet of this tall-ship lore with more than 300 detailed pen-and-ink drawings.
