Description
British navigator and cartographer James Cook very nearly completed the map of the world in three Pacific voyages from 1768 to 1779. In this gripping and detailed account, Frank McLynn (also the biographer of Kings Richard and John, Napoleon, and Marcus Aurelius) gives us a captain who was first and foremost a brilliant sailor, at home on the farthest reaches of the ocean. And though some modern accounts have disparaged Cook as an agent of colonial exploitation, McLynn reveals him to have been considerably more respectful of the peoples he encountered than were those who sailed with him. The book is illustrated with 45 color plates and features black and white maps for each chapter.

"McLynn does a yeoman's work in transforming Cook's terse, factual notations in the ships' logs into a much more readable portrayal of his voyages."Publishers Weekly
