Captain Cook

May 14th, 2008 · No Comments

David: Just finished the book on Captain Cook by Tony Horwitz – Into the blue: Boldly going where Captain Cook has gone before. A good read. He has done extensive research. He picks some of the key parts of the Cook story and tells the story in great detail so that you can feel what it was like to be at the location. He then adds his own travel log of how it feels being at the same location now. You feel really sad when you get to Captain Cook’s death on Hawaii. Overall the triumphs of the first and second voyage are replaced with the difficulties of the third and the sadness of what Polynesia has become since European contact.
