This elegantly illustrated non-fiction book explores thousands of years of boat making and technological advancement as well as the significance of famous boats from legends and history.

The history of boats is intertwined with our own – since the earliest of times, humans have found ways to cross the bodies of water that cut them off from further exploration and expansion. From the earthenware pots used by Ancient Greeks, to the wooden rafts used in West Africa, through to the log canoes of the American Indian Kootenai tribe, and onwards to today’s mighty ships, trace the fascinating story of boats and their place in our culture.
