The author of The Way Things Work, The Way We Work, and many other favorites about the insides of things, David Macaulay here takes the story of his own family's immigration to America as a chance to show how steamships made it possible to safely and reliably cross the Atlantic. Of course this includes the invention of steam power itself, and Macaulay is a master of depicting such developments as very human endeavors. Leading up to the design of the last and most advanced of the great steamships, the SS United States (on which the Macaulays embarked), the superbly detailed drawings in this book for readers 8 and up made it a 2020 Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year.
