Cook’s Endeavour Journal: The Inside Story illuminates one of the world’s most famous expeditions. The circumnavigation of the globe b y Lieutenant James Cook aboard HMB Endeavour.
It is a timeless story of courageous exploration – the charting of New Zealand and Australia’s eastern seaboard – and of high adventure: a stand-off with a hostile Brazilian army and a near-shipwreck that almost brought the voyage to a premature end. The voyage of the Endeavour helped make sense of the eighteenth-century world. This book which brings Cook’s own words from his journal to life, will help you understand how.
