The Canal System Of England: Its Growth And Present Condition, With Particular Reference To The Cheap Carriage Of Goods

H. Gordon Thompson

The Canal System Of England: Its Growth And Present Condition, With Particular Reference To The Cheap Carriage Of Goods by H. Gordon ThompsonThe material from which this little work has been drawn has necessarily been exceedingly various. I had at one time thought of indicating the many authorities to whose works I am indebted for information, and as far as possible this has been done in the footnotes to the text. So extensive, however, have been the sources from whichmy information has been derived, that it will hardly be surprising if some have been left unacknowledged. May I therefore express my indebtedness to all upon whose experience I have based my argument or from whom I have obtained facts and figures, either by direct communication...

Heaven's Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal

Jack Kelly

Heaven's Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal by Jack Kelly

The technological marvel of its age, the Erie Canal grew out of a sudden fit of inspiration. Proponents didn't just dream; they built a 360-mile waterway entirely by hand and largely through wilderness. As excitement crackled down its length, the canal became the scene of the most striking outburst of imagination in American history. Zealots invented new religions and new modes of living. The Erie Canal made New York the financial capital of America and brought the modern world crashing into the frontier. Men and women saw God face to face, gained and lost fortunes, and reveled in a period of...

Forty Years Master: A Life in Sail and Steam

Daniel O. Killman

Forty Years Master: A Life in Sail and Steam by Daniel O. KillmanDuring Daniel O. Killman??s more than fifty years at sea, he was shipwrecked off Coos Bay, discovered gold in Alaska, was dismasted in a hurricane near Fiji, lost a rudder en route to Adelaide, had run-ins with bureaucrats, officials, and seamen, and found himself in court facing charges of murder, all the while remaining in impeccable standing with the owners of his vessels. His thrilling life at sea during the last decades of sailing ships and the emergence of steam vessels in the Pacific is chronicled in Forty Years Master: A Life in Sail and Steam.

French Destroyers: Torpilleurs d'Escadres and Contre-Torpilleurs, 1922?1956

John Jordan & Jean Moulin

French Destroyers: Torpilleurs d'Escadres and Contre-Torpilleurs, 1922?1956 by John Jordan & Jean MoulinLike its highly successful predecessors, French Battleships and French Cruisers, this beautifully presented book blends technical and historical analysis to produce the only comprehensive study of French destroyers in the English language. Between the world wars, France produced some of the largest and fastest destroyers in the world. Known as Contre-Torpilleurs, these striking and innovative super-destroyers and the more conventional Torpilleurs d??Escadre are the focus of this book. The first part of the book covers the design of these ships, pairing the text with detailed data tables, specially-drawn...

A Century of Sail and Steam on the Niagara River

Barlow Cumberland

A Century of Sail and Steam on the Niagara River by Barlow CumberlandThis narrative is not, nor does it purport to be one of general navigation upon Lake Ontario, but solely of the vessels and steamers which plyed during its century to the ports of the Niagara River, and particularly of the rise of the Niagara Navigation Co., to which it is largely devoted. Considerable detail has, however been given to the history of the steamers "Frontenac" and "Ontario" because the latter has hitherto been reported to have been the first to be launched, and the credit of being the first to introduce steam navigation upon Lake Ontario has erroneously been given to the American...

Boating

Walter Bradford Woodgate

Boating by Walter Bradford WoodgateA few lines only are necessary to explain the object with which these volumes are put forth. There is no modern encyclopædia to which the inexperienced man, who seeks guidance in the practice of the various British Sports and Pastimes, can turn for information. Some books there are on Hunting, some on Racing, some on Lawn Tennis, some on Fishing, and so on; but one Library, or succession of volumes, which treats of the Sports and Pastimes indulged in by Englishmen-and women-is wanting. The Badminton Library is offered to supply the want. Of the imperfections which must be found in the execution...

Ships for all Nations: John Brown & Company Clydebank 1847-1971

Ian Johnston

Ships for all Nations: John Brown & Company Clydebank 1847-1971 by Ian JohnstonThe Clydebank shipyard built some of the most famous vessels in maritime history - great transatlantic liners like Lusitania, Queen Mary and QE2, and iconic warships like the battlecruiser Hood, and Britain's last battleship, HMS Vanguard. Starting life as J & G Thomson in 1847, the business acquired its more famous persona when taken over in 1899 by the Sheffield-based steelmaker John Brown & Co, which enhanced the yard's existing reputation for turning out first-class products, both naval and mercantile. This book charts the fortunes of the company in terms of its business development, its...

Lightships, Lighthouses, and Lifeboat Stations: A Memoir and History

Bernie Webber

Lightships, Lighthouses, and Lifeboat Stations: A Memoir and History by Bernie WebberLightships, Lighthouses and Lifeboat Stations is part history book, part memoir, written by Bernie Webber, recipient of the Coast Guard's highest award, the Gold Life-saving Medal, and hero of the Disney movie The Finest Hours. While the public will recognize Webber's name from the movie and the bestselling book by the same name, few people know that during his lengthy Coast Guard career he served on lightships (ships anchored in dangerous areas to warn other vessels of hazards) in addition to lifeboat stations (small boat rescue stations) and lighthouses. Webber poses the following question:...

Narratives of the Wreck of the Whale-Ship Essex

Owen Chase

Narratives of the Wreck of the Whale-Ship Essex by Owen ChaseIn 1819, the American whaler Essex was sailing deep into the great equatorial hunting grounds of the Pacific when it was destroyed by a maddened sperm whale. By all reports, the 85-foot whale deliberately rammed the ship twice and sank it. The incident, which occurred in the same year that Herman Melville was born, became a primary source of inspiration for Moby-Dick. Indeed, much of the detail and color in the final chapter of Melville's work is drawn directly from these three eyewitness accounts. The book also served as the basis for the 2015 movie In the Heart of the Sea, directed by Ron...

Bangladesh Maritime History

Ghulam M. Suhrawardi

Bangladesh Maritime History by Ghulam M. SuhrawardiA wide network of rivers make Bangladesh one of the largest maritime nations in the world. Various types of inland marine crafts have been carrying cargo and passengers for thousands of years. Being self sufficient in resources, ancient Bangladeshis did not have to venture outside their nation and therefore, ocean borne navigation was never an important aspect of their life. Inland marine was an important feature in the lifestyle of Bangladeshis and will remain so for a long time.

Aaron Saunders

Stranded: Alaska's Worst Maritime Disaster Nearly Happened Twice by Aaron SaundersIn 1918, Canadian Pacific steamship Princess Sophia ran aground on Alaska's Vanderbilt reef. She sat there for two terrifying days before sinking in a raging snowstorm.
