One of the most interesting and understandable ways to track human progress is through the vehicles we invent. With hundreds of color illustrations and photographs, this rather thorough guide for readers 9 to 12 surveys how we travel by wheels, rails, by sea, and in the air. Each section provides short texts and statistics for a wide range of transports, including Viking longships, the Model T, Formula One race cars, the Flying Scotsman locomotive, zeppelins, the Boeing B-17, and space shuttles. In the appendix, the book also contains a glossary, a timeline, and a list of record breakers.
