About This Book
Koreans devised boats to overcome the physical constraints imposed by the rivers and seas, and to make the most of their given environment. The development of traditional Korean ships called hanseon coincides with the history of the Korean people, as ships were a vital part of the Korean way of life. Therefore, understanding the construction and usage of Korean ships will provide a unique insight into the Korean way of life. This book also describes how Korean ancestors lived and struggled against the elements, and how they overcame the challenge through the construction and usage of ships. The vivid pictures and the detailed explanations will help readers understand Korean traditional ships and their history. Choi Wan-gee, the author of this book, currently teaches Korean history and educational history as a faculty member of the Social Studies Education Department at Ewha Womans University.
