Carr 1983Captain Cook and His Exploration of the Pacific. The story of Britain's most famous scientific navigator and his charting of the South Seas
By Roger Morriss. It is a Snapping-turtle guide, by Ticktock Publishing Ltd (ISBN 1-86007-032-9).
Its 32 pages may seem few, but its packed with more illustrations that many books twice its size; there are 6 on the cover alone and over 90 inside! Rather than a long narrative, the text is broken up into bite-size chunks increasing its appeal to those people not already smitten by our hero. Buy two: one to keep and one to give away to the person who doesn't understand "what all the fuss is about".
Reviewer: Ian Boreham
Originally published in Cook's Log, page 1418, volume 20, number 3 (1997).
