Book Description
Captain James Cook was the greatest explorer of his age, perhaps of any age. He was a leader of men, a master voyager who journeyed to unknown places, a secker of knowledge who commanded three demanding scientific expeditions. He and his crews had encounters with peoples of the South Seas, which could lead to mutual respect and trade, but also to misunderstanding and violence. Even before he died his exploits were widely admired. But his death at the hands of Hawaiians turned him into a legendary figure: a hero of the Enlightenment, who was said to have brought `civilization` to the Pacific while giving up his own life in the process.
