Synopsis: A rousing adventure biography which captures the extraordinary, world-changing life of the one of the world's greatest explorers. James Cook never laid eyes on the sea until he was in his teens. He then began an extraordinary rise from farmboy outsider to the hallowed rank of captain of the Royal Navy, leading three historic journeys that would forever link his name with fearless exploration (and inspire pop-culture heroes like Captain Hook and Captain James T. Kirk). In FARTHER THAN ANY MAN, noted modern-day adventurer Martin Dugard strips away the myth of Cook and instead portrays a complex, conflicted man of tremendous ambition, intellect and sheer hardheadedness. Full of action, lush description, and fascinating historical characters like King George III and Master William Bligh, Dugard's gripping account of the life and gruesome demise of Capt. James Cook is a thrilling story of a discoverer hell-bent on travelling farther than any man.
About the Author: Martin Dugard is the author of KNOCKDOWN and also writes regularly for GQ, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED and ESQUIRE.
