Cook's Sites: Revisiting History
University of Otago Press with Centre for Cross-Cultural Research, Australian National University, 1999 - History - 196 pages
The authors of this book have revisited the sites of contact between Cook's crews in Dusky South and Queen Charlotte Sound. The photographs and text examine the traces of the past in these places, opening up ambiguities, and avoiding easy judgements about these early meetings. They have also travelled to Europe, to see where botanical specimens, indigenous artifacts, and the voyagers' documents ended up. Cook's Sites is a revelation: of places of unique historical signficance, and of the intriguing stories woven around them.
