Description
 
Captain Cook was the greatest explorer of his age. By the age of 47, he had captained 2 long voyages of discovery & charted the east coast of Australia, the whole of New Zealand & innumerable exotic islands in the vast Pacific. The British Admiralty wanted a man to lead a new expedition to the west coast of America in search of the Pacific entrance to the fabled North West Passage. Cook fell by chance upon the idyllic archipelago of the Hawaiian Islands. He & his sailors then spent many months mapping & charting the formidable northwest coast of American from Vancouver Island up to the frozen northern coastline of Alaska. Cook then brought his fleet back to the Hawaiian Islands, where a series of misjudgments ended in his brutal & tragic death. Illus.
