Description
 
Tells the stories of sailors, whalers, Coast Guard officers, and others who make their lives on our rivers, canals, and oceans. It begins with the Native Americans, who traveled and fished the country’s inland waters. Riverboats became an inexpensive and leisurely way to travel. The seagoing packets were the first ships to follow a set schedule, while the clipper ships brought both men and supplies to the gold rush. Steamships began making regular trips to Europe. These same steamships brought millions of immigrants to the U.S. Today’s oil tankers, cargo ships, and cruise ships play an important role in modern American life. “This book takes readers on a fascinating journey from port to port on America’s waters.” Full-color illustrations. Juvenile audience.
