Boat - Eyewitness Guides


4.0 stars

From fishermen on kayaks to soldier son galleys, cargo on steamships to sailors on yachts, this book will show you the importance and perils of a life at sea.

This superb collection of specially commissioned photographs tells the fascinating story of how and why boats, rafts, and ships have changed over the years. See how a plank boat is constructed, and look at sails from around the world, from the elegant junks and dhows of Asia to the many-masted clippers that sailed the seven seas during the nineteenth century.

Boat is a compelling and informative guide to the history and development of boats and ships worldwide.
