Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Just imagine land transportation in the future with nuclear-powered trains, vacuum-powered tube trains, and cars that will not need drivers. The book explores today's most advanced technology for land transportation, and suggests how this technology might change in the future. The "Contents" page shows the scope of the information. The "Introduction" explains the need for better land transportation, and how these changes may transform our daily lives. The text, vivid photographs, and other graphics illustrate the elements of the various modes of land transportation. These explanations include: Trucks and Utilities, People Movers, Personal Transport, Emergency Vehicles, Safety First, Fabulous Fabrications, Power to the Wheels, and Jam-Free Future. "Look Further!" shows how land transport could change into air transport with hovercars and hoverbikes. The "Glossary" defines technical terms used in the text. An "Index" provides easy navigation through the material. On Land is part of the "Future Transport Series" which also includes: By Air, In Space, and On Water. These books provide a history of travel, and give young readers a look into the future of technology for all types of transportation. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
