Description:
New book, 480 pages. James Cook's three epic journeys between 1768 and 1779 were the last great voyages of discovery. Cook explored more of the earth's surface than anyone in history - sailing from the Acrtic the the Antarctic, from Tahiti to Siberia, from Easter Island to the Great Barrier Reef - and introduced the West to an exotic world of taboo and tatoo, of cannibalism and ritual sex. The author vivdly recounts these adventures and revisits the lands and peoples Cook discovered to explore the captain's legacy in today's Pacific. He also searches for Cook the man: a relentless prodigy who fled farm life, and later the luxury of Georgian London, for the privation and peril of sailing off the edge of the map.
