Few names in maritime history are revered as James Cook, RN. He sits in the same league as Christopher Columbus, Sir Walter Raleigh, Sir Francis Drake and Lord Nelson to list just a handful of great seamen. Cook's exploits as explorer and navigator are the stuff of legends - all the more awesome when we remember he was born into humble circumstances and by his own mettle had to fight prejudice and class distinction to achieve his mark. He died at the hands of hostile natives on the other side of the world - yet his crew survived and were able to return to England to tell of his further exploits. A nation mourned. This book Captain Cook Country, charts his life from birth in the county of Yorkshire to his death on Tahiti through photographs of places associated with his life. It is a unique exploration of the man and his life, brought vividly to life in full colour.
