Description
This lively history of transportation follows our fascinating route from primitive technology like sandals to driverless cars and beyond! a Since humans first stood upright, we've been on the move. Need food? Water? Land? A place to live? Survival depends upon motion. For thousands of years, people have devised ways to move faster, farther, and more comfortably. Their inventions-shoes, skis, the rudder, the wheel, engines, rockets-have had an enormous impact on how and where human beings live and thrive. When human beings get a move on, change happens- - The wheel, probably first used in the Middle East around 6,000 years ago, meant building and trading supplies could be moved more easily-whole civilizations rolled out. - The Vikings sailed far and wide because they used a keel on their longships. - Horse-and-carriage gridlock gave rise to subways. - The bicycle changed the world for women in terms of freedom and fashion. - Drones and driverless cars are the future . . . coming sooner than we think. Award-winning author HP Newquist explores the transportation inventions and technologies that have transformed the way we experience the world around us.aIt's a fascinating journey!
