Book Details

Today, we can travel across the world in very short periods of time through fast-moving vehicles. It was not possible a few decades ago. But have you ever wondered how this became possible? The Story of Transport takes you on a journey, spanning the invention of wheel to modern-day marvels of speed. It also makes you aware that although vehicles have contributed to humankind?s progress, their overuse is polluting the environment. Indeed, they are contributing to global warming and suffocating our planet. So get, set, go, and find some fast, green ways for futuristic travel!
