This book about the evolution of watercraft on the American continents begins with elusive evidence of Eskimo whaling 4,000 years ago and concludes with Antartic whaling of the 1960's. The stress is on the period from 1492 to 1928, with emphasis on the transition from sail to steam in the middle of the 19th century.
