From Rocks to Rockets by William Gilkerson
Book DescriptionWilliam Gilkerson takes the broad, sweeping history of the human race and puts it into pictures that are at once meaningful, sometimes profound, and always funny. His pen takes us from cave men with rocks to modern bombs and rockets, and depicts the chaos throughout. First published in 1963, we are delighted to bring this amusing and glorious look at arms and armies through the ages to a new audience. There are laughs on every page, but also wry, thought-provoking observations, all expressed through Gilkerson's wonderfully detailed drawings which will enthrall readers of all ages.

In 1952 off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, fierce winds force a small boat into port. The sailor of the boat is the eccentric Captain Charles Johnson, who then takes up residence at the small inn run by a young boy, Jim, and his mother. Who is this man who tells stories about sailing on a pirate ship? And how can he possibly know so much?
