Cook's Endeavour Journal: The Inside Story brings to life the record of one of the world's most famous expeditions, the circumnavigation of the globe by Lieutenant James Cook aboard HMB Endeavour. It is a timeless story of courageous exploration--the charting of New Zealand and Australia's eastern seaboard--and of high adventure: a stand-off with a hostile Brazilian army and a near-shipwreck that almost brought the voyage to a premature end. The voyage of the Endeavour helped make sense of the eighteenth-century world. Cook's Endeavour Journal: The Inside Story, told in Cook's own words and in historical detail, will help you understand how.
