Pictorial history of American ships on the high seas and inland waters by John Durant( Book )

15 editions published between 1953 and 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the compelling story of Americans who went down to the sea (and inland waters) in ships, their life at home, their life aboard ships, and their life in faraway lands. Ships discovered this country and ships, in large part, have made possible its greatness. They have played a major part in every phase of our growth. In wars they have provided the bridge for victory and freedom. In peace, they have been and are the means of discovery, expansion, and friendly commerce. This is an entertaining, informal account, in pictures and text, of maritime America from the Indian canoe to the blue-ribbon liners, covering everything that has anything to do with water craft--high seas and inland--and the men who made such craft important.--From publisher description
