Boats Fast and Slow
This elegantly illustrated non-fiction title explores thousands of years of boat making and technological advances as well as the significance of famous boats from legends and history. 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.
From the woven rafts of ancient Mesopotamia, to Native American log canoes, through to Dutch merchant ships and onwards to today's modern hydrofoils, trace the fascinating story of boats and their place in our culture.
