Here, in one volume, is the long-awaited reprint of Ray Parkin's highly acclaimed and multi-award-winning study of Captain James Cook's Bark Endeavour. It's a unique account of a great journey of discovery - Endeavour's voyage up the east coast of New Holland (Australia) in the year 1770 - and a remarkable re-creation of the experience of being on board ship. Writing for layperson and mariner alike, Parkin draws on meticulous research to reveal what the Endeavour looked like, how she sailed, how she smelled; what daily life would have been like for those on board.
