Description
Spanning 5,000 years of oceanic history, this is an abundantly and colorfully illustrated chronology of sailors and the sea. Here are great sea voyages—often with eyewitness accounts, from voyagers like Christopher Columbus, Captain James Cook, and Vitus Bering—involving remarkable feats of seamanship, navigation, endurance, and ingenuity, from the early Polynesians to the first circumnavigations by Portuguese and British explorers. Here too are the creation of vast trade and political empires, the introduction of modern navigational and steam power, the evolution of naval warfare, and the rise of global economies.
