Endeavour: The Story of Captain Cook's First Great Epic Voyage
Captain James Cook's voyage in the Endeavour which resulted in the mapping of New Zealand and the east coast of Australia, was an epic voyage into the unknown. According to the British government - who wished to deceive the world as to its true purpose - it was merely a scientific expedition to observe the transit of the planet Venus across the face of the sun, a measurement which could help to establish the scale of the universe itself. Instead it turned out to be the one of the greatest voyages of discovery.
