On 12th July 1776, Captain James Cook sailed from Plymouth in the three-masted collier, RESOLUTION, in search of the fabled North-West Passage. This was his third amazing voyage of discovery and this is the story he might have told. The voyage swept him and his crew from the icy wasteland of the Arctic to the tropical waters of Hawaii - a voyage in pursuit of one man's dream against the fury of the elements, in the face of unknown terrors. It was also a journey that was to change life on His Majesty's ships forever... Hammond Innes has created a brilliantly imagined diary by the Captain himself, full of fascinating detail and showing a great seaman stretched to his limits.
