Synopsis: This is the story of Captain Cook's amazing three-year journey to the Indian, Pacific, and Atlantic oceans, widely acknowledged to be the most important voyage of discovery in the far southern oceans of the world. Cook's HMS Resolution (along with a second ship, the Adventure) was the first ship to cross the Antarctic Circle, and no sailing ship has ever gone further south through the ice. Battling the elements, scarce fresh food and water, and hostile Pacific islanders, Cook was never diverted from his mission: discover new lands, peoples, and exotic species of animals, and most importantly to map the world's biggest ocean. More than two hundred years later, Cook's charts were still the best available for many remote parts of the Pacific! Told by one of Britain's most popular historians, this is a stirring tale of navigation, adventure, and exploration. Note: This is a trade paperback original in the US, originally published in the UK (2/04) as a hardcover title by Weidenfeld & Nicholson.
