100 Years of Petrol Power

Author(s): John Nicholson

English

The fifth and final book in this series for upper primary schoolchildren shows how Australia entered the Age of Oil, becoming reliant on petrol and diesel to power cars, trucks, trains, tractors, ships, machinery and aeroplanes. It shows how the internal combustion engine superseded horse and steam power as the driving force in our modern economy, and leaves us with the question: where to after the oil runs out?
