Hello Aura, you may be surpised to learn that Captain Cook never wrote any account of Australia for publication! The Admiralty, who had sponsored his first voyage of exploration, asked a well known writer, John Hawkesworth, to produce the official account of the voyage. Hawkesworth was provided with copies of the journals of Captain Cook and Joseph Banks and wrote his own interpretation of the voyage based on what he read in the journals. The book was a runaway success, but Cook considered it to be so inaccurate that he obtained the Admiralty's position to write the authorised account of his second voyage.
