True Lives: Captain Cook by Haydn Middleton


True Lives: Captain Cook by Haydn Middleton

James Cook grew up on a farm, but his secret dream was to be a sailor. He wanted to travel 'as far as it is possible for a man to go'. James's three great voyages of discovery took him from Australia to the Arctic, further than anyone else had sailed before. His explorations filled in the last empty spaces on the map of the world. Other titles in the series: Amelia Earhart, Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, Eric the Red, Galileo, Gandhi, Hans Christian Andersen, Henry Ford, Roald Dahl, Thomas Edison and William Shakespeare.
