About this title

Synopsis:

A thorough study of James Cook's "Endeavour" and a unique account of her voyage up the east coast of Australia in 1770. For layperson and mariner alike, this book describes what the "Endeavour" looked like, how she was constructed, rigged and equipped, and what daily life would have been like for the men who manned and commanded the ship.

About the Author:

Ray Parkin was born in Melbourne. He joined the Royal Australian Navy in 1928 and spent eighteen years in the service. In 1942 he was on board HMAS Perth when the cruiser was sunk by the Japanese in the Sunda Strait, killing two-thirds of those on board. After the sinking of Perth Mr Parkin spent three and a half years as a Japanese prisoner of war in Java, on the Burma-Siam Railway and in coal mines in Japan. His experience during this period led to three books which were published by the Hogarth Press: Out of the Smoke (1960); Into the Smother (1963); and The Sword and the Blossom (1967). At the end of the war Mr Parkin completed a fine art course. He worked on the Melbourne waterfront until his retirement in 1975 when he went to London to continue his research into Endeavour.
