“The story of Cook’s three historic voyages between 1768 and 1780 is one of the most remarkable in history.
Authors Rex and Thea Rienits tell how he discovered and charted much of the Pacific that we know today from the west coast of Canada and the Hawaiian Islands to New Caledonia; established, by sailing around it, that New Zealand was two narrowly separated islands and not part of a mythical continent: disproved the Dutch belief that New Holland was entirely barren by traversing the whole length of its fertile coast, also paving the way for British settlement eighteen years later; confirmed that a strait separated New Guinea from what is now Australia.
Excerpt from the diaries of Cook and his companions add a direct feeling of history in the making.”
