"It is hard for many to recall the great American passenger liners of the mid 20th century. Through creative use of period photographs, advertisements, menus, post cards and other memorabilia, the author tells the fascinating story of America’s postwar luxury passenger liners -- including the famed United States, the fastest liner in the world, and her consort America, Grace Line’s fleet of luxury liners like the Santa Paula and Santa Rosa, the American Export ''sunliners'' Constitution and Independence, the Moore-Mc Cormack liners Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, the ''white ships'' of the Matson Line, such as the Lurline and Monterey, and the American President liners President Polk and President Monroe. This book connects seafarers and armchair travelers alike with a nostalgic and less hectic time in our nation’s history. The timeless images of these floating ''legends'' is an enduring tribute to American ingenuity, the establishment of casual comfort at sea and creation of an enduring sense of adventure.
