Overview

Since writing The Only Way to Cross in 1972, John Maxtone-Graham has become one of the world's foremost maritime historians. This most recent reprint of The Only Way to Cross continues to transport readers back to the bygone maritime era, when dozens of express liners steamed in and out of New York and sailed across the North Atlantic, accommodating the rich on lavish upper decks and hordes of immigrants deep within their holds.

From discussing the vessels' engineering and architectural marvels to narrating the frightful stories of having to face perilous storms and fogs, Maxtone-Graham successfully documents the rich history these liners conjured up during their exciting journeys from port to port.

I enjoyed reading the book. Most of the other books that are out on this subject tend to be just about the facts. This book goes on about a normal day, the routine that the crew would do. The other thing, is that while the Titanic was a major part of history, that it wasn't a crusial part of this book. If you love the oceanliners of the past then this book will bring them to life for you.
