The Story of Getting From There to HereBook - 2007
Let's Go! takes readers on an amazing journey across our continent and through time to discover all the ways we've used to get from one place to another. From the very first "travelers" who came to this cold land across the Bering Land Bridge and through to future space travel, the story of transportation through the ages is the story of peoples' imagination, ingenuity, and resourcefulness. Readers take part in a journey across land, sea, and sky to see the First Peoples trailing travois and wearing snowshoes; traders and trappers crossing cold, fresh waters; and settlers in wooden ships, and horses pulling barges. Along the way, the pages offer a fascinating snapshot of life at different points in our history. As steamships, railways, streetcars, bicycles, cars, and airplanes come along, we see the world become a busier and busier place. And yet we're reminded that we still use the same ways to get around that were used in ancient times. A final spread of amazing "Did You Know" facts rounds out the book with more fascinating information on the time periods and modes of transportation covered in the book.
