Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Confederates in the Attic documents the three high-adventure voyages of Captain James Cook, who between 1768 and 1779 mapped a final third of the globe that was previously uncharted.


Review:

"[Horwitz] reaches his stride, however, when he recounts his experiences in many of the places where Cook stopped: Tahiti, Bora-Bora....A terrific reporter, Horwitz investigates how the places he visits have changed and catalogs the effects that Western civilization, as personified by Cook, has had on the indigenous peoples....Horwitz is intrepid in tracking down the modern manifestations of this legacy. But what he also does, and what makes this book so absorbing, is intersperse among all the details of life today in these far-flung places an elegant running account of Cook's exploits."

Robert R. Harris, New York Times Book Review, 09./22/2002

Poignant, probing, antic, and exhilarating, Blue Latitudes brings to life a man who helped create the global village we inhabit today. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780312422608
