The First Cities of India: The River-Road
"It was mostly about how people go by boat on rivers. If you fill up a wagon too heavy, even if it has strong wheels, it can break. It can get stuck in rocks and sink in deep sand. You can go by boat and not get stuck. They make the wheels wooden, because they haven't invented rubber. There weren't any nice smooth paved roads."
