Freighters: Cargo Ships And The People Who Work Them
by George Ancona

Huge freighters crisscross the world’s oceans, delivering cargoes to ports all around the globe. Oil and bananas, cars and grain…cargo comes in many forms. And for every type of c is a ship specially designed to carry it – giant tankers to haul oil, ro-ros to carry cars and trucks, reefers to keep perishable goods cool. George Ancona’s dramatic text and photo sequences convey the mightiness of these great ships in action, and provide a closeup look at the daily routines and challenges of life on board.
