Crossing on Time

Crossing on Time by David Macaulay is about “steam engines, fast ships and a journey to the new world”. The author immigrated from the UK to the USA as a ten year old on the SS United States, the last of the great steamships, built in 1951. This beautifully detailed book explains the inner workings of the huge ship. The illustrations are gorgeous and perfectly capture the history of ocean travel and the excitement of an ocean voyage.
