KIRKUS REVIEW

Every young ship-minded boy and girl (10 and up) with a sense of the part ships played in the making of America will find this completely fascinating. Over 200 ships are here, from the various types of dugout and canoes, to the merchantmen, the workboats, the steamships, the man-of-war, the liners and the naval vessels of World War II. In paintings (half in full color), in diagrams, in line drawings-the minute details come alive. The text follows closely, and while it is not a running history of shipping, it is chronological in development, and supplements less detailed records- shipwise- of our wars, our explorations, our expanding commerce.
