I'd gotten tired of reading o biographies.

I found it very interesting indeed.

Central to the story is Cook's curiosity. A brilliant map-maker even before he entered the Pacific, Cook would journey emotionally and intellectually into unknown waters and meet people on beaches who were used to voyaging themselves. I found it very interesting indeed.

The Voyages of Captain Cook. Cook's great voyages marked the end of an era in world history

The Voyages of Captain Cook. Cook's great voyages marked the end of an era in world history. As he sailed into Hawaii in January 1778 he made contact with the last of the human civilizations to grow up independently of the rest of the world.

Published simultaneously under the title: Discoveries : the voyages of Captain James Cook. But equally for the Polynesians and Melanesians of the Pacific, Cook's arrival in their midst merely marked a further (if disastrous) twist in diverse histories already many centuries old.

Cook's great voyages marked the end of an era in world history. As he sailed into Hawaii in January 1778, he made contact with the last of the human civilizations to grow up independently of the rest of the world. But equally for the Polynesians and Melanesians of the Pacific, Cook's arrival in their midst merely marked a further (if disastrous) twist in diverse histories already many centuries old. In this immensely enjoyable and absorbing book, Cook's journeys are reimagined, attempting to leave behind (or master) our later preoccupations to let us see what Cook and his associates experienced and what the societies he encountered experienced - from the Beothuks of Newfoundland to the Tongans of the Friendly Islands.
