"The illustrations are almost magical, transporting the reader to a specific time and place . . . Together with the text, the imagination is balanced with enough historical information to make the reading and viewing of this book a delight on many levels."
"Miller's painstaking style has produced plates that are, in effect, rendered, three-dimensional working drawings; one can literally count the number of planks in a vessel's hull. . . . precisely what the historian and research wants to see. . . . the paintings are marvelous simply to look at."
-John McKay, International Journal of Maritime History, December 2011

"This 200-page coffee-table style art book is a very special pleasure to browse through from beginning to end, and a highly recommended addition to personal, community, and academic Art History and Marine History collections."
-Midwest Book Review
"Miller has the talent to carry off both painting and text. . . . Miller's well-paced narratives reopen a lost world of navigation . . . Miller's paintings are beautifully rendered as they reimagine the ships according to the historical record. . ."
-Mike Dillon, City Living, October 2011
"A handsome coffee-table book that tells the story of world exploration . . . Miller, a maritime artist and illustrator living in Vancouver, B.C., wrote the text and illustrated the book with almost 100 of his own beautifully detailed paintings."
