Who knew? Masts, and their importance to national security, were the petroleum product of their day. So Sam Manning reveals in this small book packed with insights into the world of Europe, and the "New World" a couple of hundred years ago.

It turns out spars for big sailing boats were not so easily found, and the lack of masts big enough in length and diameter, with appropriate amounts of resin, could keep a nation from having the latest and greatest warships to protect their borders. Further parallels abound, including the economics of America labor being six times higher in the 1650s than that of feudal Europe.

Perhaps we should all be just a bit peeved that Sam Manning wasn't our history teacher back when we were in school. Granted, you can make up for lost time with the fast and inexpensive read done in such a way as give you a realistic perspective into the past. And maybe the future.

Written and illustrated by Samuel F. Manning
52 pp., softcover
6" x 9" format
