'With [Mundle's] flair for rich description and his attention to even the smallest details, he imbues his narrative with a colour not usually found in historical nonfiction.'

From Sailor to Legend – the story of Captain James Cook.

CAPTAIN JAMES COOK is one of the greatest maritime explorers of all time. Over three remarkable voyages of discovery into the Pacific in the latter part of the 18th century, Cook unravelled the oldest mystery surrounding the existence of Terra Australis Incognita — the Great South Land. He became the first explorer to circumnavigate New Zealand and establish that it was two main islands; discover the Hawaiian Islands for the British Empire; and left an enduring legacy. Rob Mundle introduces us to an unlikely sailor in a teenage Cook, who through the combination of hard-won skills as a seafarer, the talents of a self-taught navigator and surveyor, and an exceptional ability to lead and care for his men, climbed the ranks of the Royal Navy to achieve legendary status among all who sailed and mapped the world.

'The author has a long history as a sailor and this comes through in regular descriptions of handling and manoeuvring an eighteenth century sailing ship.'
