About this book

Captain James Cook's three epic journeys between 1768 and 1779 were the last great voyages of discovery. This text recounts his adventures, revisits the lands and peoples he discovered and assesses his legacy in the Pacific.

'Playful but never flippant, meticulously researched and occasionally moving, this is an unusual take on the legacy of an enigmatic captain it remains a fresh and likeable attempt to boldly go where few biographers have gone before' Daily Telegraph
