Publisher's Summary

From sailor to legend - the story of Captain James Cook, one of the greatest maritime explorers of all time.

Over three remarkable voyages of discovery into the Pacific in the latter part of the 18th century, Cook unravelled the oldest mystery surrounding the existence of Terra Australis Incognita - the Great South Land. He became the first explorer to circumnavigate New Zealand and establish that it was two main islands; discover the Hawaiian Islands for the British Empire; and left an enduring legacy.

Rob Mundle introduces us to an unlikely sailor in a teenage Cook, who through the combination of hard-won skills as a seafarer, the talents of a self-taught navigator and surveyor, and an exceptional ability to lead and care for his men, climbed the ranks of the Royal Navy to achieve legendary status among all who sailed and mapped the world.

Critic Reviews

"With [Mundle's] flair for rich description and his attention to even the smallest details, he imbues his narrative with a colour not usually found in historical nonfiction." ( The Australian)

I'm sorry it had to finish.

What a story and so wonderfully told! Sharing the best of Captain James Cook's adventures and life.
I wished to hear every detail, going back at times to re'read'.
The narration was perfect.
