Overview

For centuries, all over the world, dreamers and draughtsmen have wanted to explore the unknown; to go further than anyone before them, and to get there faster. No matter how vast the desert, or deep the ocean, or wide the canyon, or high the clouds someone, somewhere has been inspired to go one step beyond; for good reasons and bad. This has resulted in some ingenious, dangerous, disastrous and downright weird modes of transport. Here's a book full of some of the most amazing modes of transport ever invented - from moon buggies to jet planes to walking statues - and stories about the people who dared to dream them up.
