About this book

James Cook was one of the greatest sea explorers of all time, charting the Pacific islands and the coasts of New Zealand and eastern Australia. He and his crew thus came into contact with many peoples, and Cook became increasingly fascinated by Islanders' lives and culture and troubled by the consequences of his voyages. This book reimagines these encounters and explores the complex personality of Cook in this new light.
