David Macaulay, co-creator of the international bestseller The Way Things Work, brings his signature curiosity and detailing to the story of the steamship in this meticulously researched and stunningly illustrated book. Prior to the 1800s, ships crossing the Atlantic Ocean relied on the wind in their sails to make their journeys. But invention of steam power ushered in a new era of transportation that would change ocean travel forever: the steamship. Award-winning author-illustrator David Macaulay guides readers through the fascinating history that culminated in the building of the most advanced--and last--of these steamships: the SS United States. This book artfully explores the design and construction of the ship and the life of its designer and engineer, William Francis Gibbs. Framed around the author's own experience steaming across the Atlantic on the very same SS United States, Crossing on Time is a tour de force of the art of explanation and a touching and surprising childhood story.

IIf you travelled this morning, thank an engineer. Engineers solve problems to make life easier. One major problem at the start of the 20th century was inner city travel. Rails were expensive and obviously limited where a tram could go, but how could they do away with rails? Another problem was how to move a tram without horses. Read how the cities of Bradford and Leeds became so unhappy with the trams-without-rails they had bought that they actually set about building their own. The book contains images of working models, and asks; * Why was driving them was so difficult? * What was the 'Diddler' It also contains details of how you can make your own electric motor with some cheap, everyday household items. With details of the very first British tram-without-rails and an audio version included, welcome to the fascinating history of this part of engineering.

With intricately illustrated timelines, this book takes readers on a journey through the developmental history of various modes of transportation - from chariots to electric cars, dugout canoes to ocean liners, cable cars to bullet trains, and the many iterations in between. The fascinating stories behind each of these machines join together to reveal a comprehensive history of how new and inventive forms of transportation have built off one another to change our world.
