ATLANTIC HIGHWAY

From the day that Samuel Cunard's Royal William made an Atlantic crossing in 17 days, to the time the great liner United States crossed the same water in 3 1/2, lies a great saga of over 100 years of sea transportation. This book tells the story well. The races and wrecks, the ever narrowing crossing times, the legendary ships like the Titanic, Lusitania and Andrea Doria and the possibilities of future sea travel contribute their stories to a very readable maritime history.
