"This narrative history relates the whole exciting story of transportation and travel from prehistoric times to the present and describes how man, through his ingenuity and inventiveness, has found faster and easier ways of getting from place to place -- on land, on water, and in the air..." "Feet came first. At the outset, two feet. Woman's feet. When primitive man made his grueling travels across trackless country, woman trudged along and it was she who carried the household goods, food, and perhaps a baby. Then, with the happy discovery that dogs could move faster and pull heavier loads, four-footed animals came into use." "Domestication of animals, the development of the harness, and the expansion of roads brought the heyday of coach travel. The dawn of the machine age introduced rail-roads and self-propelled vehicles such as trolley cars, automobiles, buses, and trucks. " "While man’s efforts were focused on land travel, water also presented a challenge, for it soon became apparent that his progress was impeded by rivers and lakes. The date when man first ventured onto water is lost to antiquity, but from evidence available we can assume that floating logs fashioned into dugouts were the beginning. From these crude vessels, he eventually moved to faster, more efficient ocean-going ships. " "Transportation through the Ages concludes with an account of man’s most phenomenal achievement – flight – from its unpromising beginning to today’s era of space travel."--Jacket
