A comprehensive biography, get ready for a long read
on 18 May 2014
This book is full of facts written in such a way that I retained much of it without trying. At times it seemed a bit repetitive with one storm flowing into another and island discoveries on every page. I would have liked to have read more about his time at home but understand that information was limited. I come away with an appreciation of how great a man Cook was.
