Captain Cook is generally acknowledged as the first great European scientific explorer. Despite his ordinary roots, he rose through the ranks to become a remarkable officer. His exploration of the South Pacific resulted not only in the charting of New Zealand, the East coast of Australia and many Pacific islands, but also the discovery and description of many plants, societies and animals previously unknown to Europeans. This book, published to accompany the National Maritime Museums groundbreaking exhibition on ocean exploration, Oceans of Discovery, provides an overview of Cooks achievements. With chapters on Cooks great voyages, scientific exploration, ship construction, cannibalism and art, the book is a fascinating and accessible account, featuring many beautiful images from the Museums own collections.
