Here is a link to a book about the life of John Ericcson ( by way of Google books), the transplanted Swede who invented the propeller. The idea was rejected by the English Navy which caused Ericcson to go to the USA.

He also designed ships, steam engines and hot air engines.
The propeller is covered in Chapter VI

I have read both volumes in paper form and I have to say it is a compelling read for anyone interested in the history of technological developments.
