Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. The Book People
While the story of Endeavour is widely written about, Captain Cook sailed with eight ships, which 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 readable and comprehensible account of the long eighteenth century. Using contemporary sources, this gripping narrative 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.
