Description: This new history begins by looking at ships of today, such as nuclear submarines, bulk carriers, hovercraft, and modern tugs, and then traces their story back to the sailing ships of early times. A feature of the book is the superb collection of photographs—over fifty printed in full color—from museums and galleries throughout the world. They help the reader to see clearly how the ship evolved over the centuries. Frank Knight has some fascinating stories to tell: for example, the rivalry between John Stevens and Robert Fulton to build a practical steamboat; the sinking of the Titanic; the race of the great clipper ships for the China trade. His book is filled with a host of facts that will appeal to the young historian. This is a reference book to be read—and viewed—with enjoyment.
