It is hard to imagine a world without the wheel, yet there was a time before the wheel had been invented. Startlingly simple, the wheel remains one of humankind's most revolutionary and significant inventions. Road and Rail Transportation takes readers on a fascinating tour showing the evolution of the technologies used for transporting people and goods by land from one place to another. Beginning with the time before the wheel and following the story up through the present, with a look to the future as well, this volume provides detailed discussion on the development of technology that has led to travel by horse, bicycle, car, train, and variations of these vehicles. Illustrations accompany the engaging narrative, and a timeline, glossary, further reading list, and index provide easy access to the broad range of information contained within the book's pages.
