Details

The author of two critically acclaimed books on Captain Cook, John Robson has turned his attention to the decade leading up to Cook's famous 1768 expedition to the Pacific. This book investigates and explains why Cook was chosen to captain Endeavor and how he became uniquely qualified for the exacting tasks of exploration. Displaying much new research, it examines Cook's remarkable seamanship qualities and his surveying, astronomical, and cartographic skills, as well as his actions at the siege of Quebec. Cook scholars and armchair explorers alike will appreciate this important new study.
