A Short History of Seafaring
by Lavery, Brian
Compelling, comprehensive, and innovative, Lavery’s history assembles the greatest feats of seamanship, navigation, endurance, and ingenuity–from the early Polynesians through the first intrepid European circumnavigators to hardy seekers of the Northwest Passage. More than 500 photos and illustrations bring the action to life. Excerpts from historical documents, diaries, and notebooks further inform and delight.
