From the woven rafts of ancient Mesopotamia to 17th century Dutch merchant ships, and onwards to today’s modern sailing hydrofoils, trace the fascinating story of boats and their place in our culture.
The history of boats is intertwined with our own – since the earliest times, humans have found ways to cross the bodies of water that cut them off from further exploration and expansion.
Young readers can delve into the thousands of years of boat-making history and learn about famous boats from legends and fiction in this elegantly illustrated book.
