Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Just imagine water travel of the future that will lessen problems with global warming, human overcrowding, pollution, and dwindling energy resources. The book explores today's most advanced technology for water transportation, and suggests how this technology might change in the future. The "Contents" page shows the scope of the information. The "Introduction" explains how people have used water transportation for centuries, and how new technology may make this travel mode even more significant. The text, vivid photographs, and other graphics illustrate the elements of the various modes of water transportation. These explanations include: History of Watercraft, Go Cruising, Future Ferries, Cargo Carriers, Skimmers and Amphibians, Yachts and Racers, Personal Watercraft, Future Navies, Submarines and Submersibles, Rescue and Survival, Maritime Tech, and Future Ports. "Look Further!" points out the value of less polluting, more energy-efficient, safer, and easier to use watercraft. An "Index" provides easy navigation through the material. On Water is part of the "Future Transport Series" which also includes: On Land, In Space, and By Air. 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
