A Story of Travel in 50 Vehicles: From Shoes to Space Shuttles

We rated this book:


A Story of Travel in 50 Vehicles is a book about what the title says (except the story part). It explains fifty vehicles “from shoes to space shuttles.” Horses, for example, were a very old vehicle. If we were on a horse today, we would be bored by now! Did you know that the first “manned” hot air balloon flight passengers were a sheep, a duck, and a rooster? I didn’t know that until I read A Story of Travel in 50 Vehicles. The first elevator was invented by a man named Elisha Otis on September 20, 1853. The Ski-Doo was the first modern snowmobile. And the Segway is now the latest vehicle in the world! There are a lot of interesting and sometimes weird facts about these vehicles and many, MANY more in this book. However, there are boring facts about some vehicles, so there were a few times the book was less interesting to me. If you are really interested in vehicles, then you will want to take a look at this book.
