"For two decades, the Panama route was the best way of travel and communication between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the United States.

The present study has grown from a lifelong interest in maritime history and particularly from an early concern with the history of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company. It has taken shape with the discovery of materials and has therefore given the author the joy of exploration in little-charted seas"--Pref

Beginning with the mail contract to Gibraltar, P & O quickly became the natural way for generations of Englishmen and women to travel to India and the Far East. Many great names and colourful personalities have played their part in the story since Brodie McGhie Wilcox and Arthur Anderson won, in 1837, their first contract to carry mail.

Ahundred years later cruising on P & O;s famous white ships remains an important part of thecompany's activities.
