Carr 1983The Golden Haze; with Captain Cook in the South Pacific
Roderick Cameron. Weidenfeld and Nicholson, 1964.
Roderick Cameron visited Tahiti, Easter Island, Tonga, the Marquesas, the New Hebrides, New Caledonia and Hawaii between 1959 and 1961. It was a matter of flying to the main island of each archipelago and then arranging his itinerary. For instance to explore the New Hebrides he had to charter a fifty-foot launch, and to visit the Isle of Pines in New Caledonia he hired a Puss Moth.
His book devotes a chapter to each area, summarising what happened there when Cook arrived and then when Cameron arrived. It is more about Cook than Cameron.
