Captain James Cook was the greatest explorer of his age, perhaps of any age.He was a leader of men, a master traveler who travelled to unknown places, a knowledge seeker who commissioned three demanding scientific expeditions.He and his crews had meetings with the peoples of the South Seas, which could lead to mutual respect and trade, but also to misunderstanding and violence.Even before his death, his exploits were widely admiredBut his death at the hands of Hawaiians made him a legendary figure, a hero of the Enlightenment, who was said to have brought “civilization” to the Pacific while giving his own life in the process.Yet, despite all that is known about Cook’s life and many adventures, man himself remains shrouded in mystery.With this book, Dan O’ Sullivan seeks to put this line and sheds light on Cook’s character, fraying his personality in the pages of his own journals.As well as an original and enlightening re-examination of Cook’s complex character, it is also a lively introduction to his life and the epoch that is indispensable to read for all those who are interested in this incomparable captain.
