Overview

Endeavour at Cape Horn by John Selwyn Gilbert

This book is about a long journey by sea, from Fremantle, in Western Australia, to Whitby, in Yorkshire. It took 139 days and the author and his shipmates travelled 16,626 miles. They were crewing on board the Endeavour Replica, modelled on Captain Cook's ship, in which he completed a similar journey in the opposite direction in the eighteenth century. The journey is full of hazards and privations, like Cook's own journey, and the adventures and the vicissitudes are well described and well remembered. The author celebrated his 59th. birthday close to the spot on the earth's surface that is furthest from any land.
