The first book to tell the full story of Cook s merchant ships in their historical context
While the story of "Endeavour" is widely written about, Captain Cook sailed in or with eight ships that began their lives as merchant ships. This detailed illustrated history tells the story of these ships and the people who sailed in them. In placing these ships and people in the personal, political, social, financial, scientific, and religious contexts of their times, this book provides a comprehensible account of the Eighteenth Century. Often using contemporary sources, this gripping account fills a gap in Cook history and attempts to catch something of that exciting, violent, gossipy but largely untaught and unknown, period through which these vessels and their people sailed literally and figuratively between the old world and the new.
