In his interesting work, the professional naval historian and archaeologist Brian Fagan has tackled a very rich topic, namely enduring quest to master the world's oceans, considered one of the most mysterious terrains. It will be great for all people fascinated with the sea stories and also interesting in boats. The content of the publication is very readable, covering a good portion of the naval history from the earliest boat journeys in the Pacific Islands to the nineteenth century transportations. The author has made an excellent attempt to capture the types of the journeys and reasons why the mariners of the ancient times needed to strike out past the horizon line. In some cases the author has also tried to capture the technical parts of the journeys covered, for example how the boats were boats and what materials were used for construction, how they navigated and manned, and other important and interesting matters. He recommends to read this volume in a linear manner but to start with the epilogue. The book starts quite slow but them rapidly picks up steam. It includes lots of information related to the people from different eras, correct interpretations of the collected data and even several personal anecdotes making it a very fascinating reading.
