It is February 1779 Captain James Cook is on his last voyage to the Pacific.
This is a fascinating fictionalised account of the sad events leading up to
the demise of Captain James Cook. Although written as a novel the content
has been thoroughly researched from the officers journals of Cook's last
voyage of discovery to the Pacific, and in this respect is an authentic
account of the events leading up to his tragic death at the hands of the
Hawaiians. The names used in this work are of people who actually sailed on
the two ships of this expedition although the actions attributed to these
individuals have been somewhat embroidered by the imagination.
Great effort has been applied to put across Cook’s humane and compassionate
understanding of his fellow man – particularly in the eighteenth century
British Navy – this endeared him to the brutish men under his charge.
Without doubt Cook was one of the greatest seamen and navigators the world
had ever produced. His discoveries in the Pacific opened up this vast ocean
to the western world so that it was no longer a mystery for the armchair
theorists to speculate over.
