Dating from William Cartwright and Henry Cracknell's Patent of 1888 the Steam Yacht, as the ride was to become known, was the first 'white knuckle' thrill ride to be seen on travelling fairgrounds. This book documents the histories of each of the 20 rides which travelled in Great Britain, the traction engines which accompanied them, and details of the curiously interwoven family relationships of many of the owners.
