“Remember, the greater the opportunity, the fewer are those who see it.”

 – James Cook

 

James Cook was an 18th-century British explorer known for these three major world voyages. The initial reason for his expeditions was to seek clarification and discover unknown regions in the Southern Hemisphere, mainly Australia and the surrounding islands. While on this excursion, Cook and company were able to discern many astronomical mysteries, meet local tribes, helped develop means of determining longitude lines, and find several important sea routes.

 

This work is a narrative of all three of Cook’s Voyages focusing on the most interesting parts including Tahiti, crossing the Antarctic Circle, New Zealand, Sea Lions and other discoveries in the South Atlantic, Hawaii and its King, Cook slain by Natives, return journey from China, and more. This edition includes numerous full-page black and white illustrations!
