Transport and Travel
Pack your bags and prepare to roam wherever you’d like through this artful historical account of travel modes. You have the choice of rolling on wheels, sliding. on rails, soaring through the air, or sailing on the water. This delightfully illustrated chronicle describes how people managed to move through the ages. Starting with the wheel, pictures of coaches, chariots, covered wagons, bicycles, and models of automobiles, even the oriental rickshaw are depicted. Dependent on rails, view the steam locomotives and the sleek bullet trains as well as trams, and remark at the ubiquitous city subways. Try a pair of ice skates, or sled down a hill on the guiding blades. Get up in the air on a hot air balloon, follow the Wright brothers and the progress of the airplane and continue into the world of rocket science. In the water, paddle with the Vikings in their longships, accompany rowers in canoes, or ride a gondola or paddleboat. Trust a lifeboat for rescue if you fall overboard. All these means of travel, colorfully illustrated with clever descriptions, will dazzle all those youngsters with inventive imaginations.
