Synopsis

Need food? Water? Land? A place to live? Survival depends upon motion. For thousands of years people have invented ways to move faster, farther, and more comfortably. Their inventions -- shoes, skis, the rudder, the wheel, engines, rockets--had an enormous impact on how and where human beings lived and thrived. With lively prose and super-cool photos, HP Newquist takes readers on a journey through transportation history. He makes stops along the way to raise and answer interesting questions such as: Why were the Vikings such successful sailors? (Think "keel.") Or what did horse-and-carriage gridlock bring about? (Hint: "The Tube.") Or what newfangled invention meant a big change for women in terms of freedom and fashion? (We're talking two wheels...) Or when will your next book order arrive by drone? (Sooner than you might think!)
