The Journals of Captain Cook, Paperback / softback Book

The Journals of Captain Cook Paperback / softback

Edited by Philip Edwards


Cook led three famous expeditions to the Pacific Ocean between 1768 and 1779.

In voyages that ranged from the Antarctic circle to the Arctic Sea, Cook charted Australia and the whole coast of New Zealand, and brought back detailed descriptions of the natural history of the Pacific.

Accounts based on Cook's journals were issued at the time, but it was not until this century that the original journals were published in Beaglehole's definitive edition.

The JOURNALS tells the story of these voyages as Cook wanted it to be told, radiating the ambition, courage and skill which enabled him to carry out an unrivalled series of expeditions in dangerous waters.
