MIDDLE READERS (Age 9-12)

An informative look at a landmark change in 18th century nautical navigation. When the British government offers a (very large!) reward to any inventor who can make long-distance voyages safe, the most learned men declare the problem unsolveable. The solution comes from humble carpenter and clockmaker John Harrison who revolutionized the Age of Sail.
