Summary
"Imagine a street filled with horses and buggies, or the skies without aeroplanes! You might not realise that, before vehicles, it used to take days--even weeks--to visit friends or family! This title looks at major innovations in transportation over the years, and the ingenious inventors, scientists, and engineers who made them. With a little inventive thinking, what might you create to help us change the way we travel?"--Provided by publisher
