Description: From bamboo rafts to the double-hulled voyaging canoe, this book is a celebration of the history of the traditional boats of Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. The lives of the people in these island countries have depended on the sea, and their ships reflect their mastery of sailing and shipbuilding. Early sailors built simple dugout canoes, but the invention of the outrigger and the double-hulled canoe allowed the Polynesians to navigate rough waters and sail thousands of miles -- at least 1,000 years before the Greeks and Romans mastered the Mediterranean. From New Zealand to Hawaii to Indonesia, this book discusses fishing techniques, navigational methods, and boat building facts.
