Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395566924, Hardcover)

The wooden ship is probably the most complex wooden structure devised by man: a vast three-dimensional sculpture built from countless pieces fitted together like a jigsaw. This book explores this structure from its earliest and simplest forms, like the birch-bark canoe, to its modern descendants: the sophisticated racers and pleasure crafts of the 20th century. Each step in this boat-building evolution is illuminated by photographs, diagrams and historical material. From dugouts and dinghys to warships and workboats, this book celebrates the illustrious art, craft and history of wooden boat-building.
