Overview

Peter Aughton's Endeavor The Story of Captain Cook's First Great Epic Voyage is the first dramatic narrative that tells the courageous story of Captain James Cook's expedition through the South Pacific.

Cook's voyage, which later resulted in the mapping of New Zealand and the east coast of Australia, takes us through the uncharted waters around the coastlines of South America, Africa, and Australia. Together the shipmates sail in their wooden ship around the unknown territory where in their three-year trip, Cook and his crew encounter different cultures and, different people like the amorous Tahitians, the fierce and warlike Maoris, and the reticent Australian Aborigines.

A thoroughly enjoyable read, Peter Aughton's Endeavor: The Story of Captain Cook's First Great Epic Voyage is truly an adventure story that tells the real life journey of one man's epic dream.
