Gray, William R.
Voyages to Paradise; exploring in the wake of Captain Cook.
The National Geographic Society.
William Gray's book has all the hallmarks of the National Geographic magazine: a chatty style of writing and a profusion of illustrations.
It covers places other books usually ignore, such as Yorkshire and Newfoundland. The interviews that Gray conducted are about Cook rather than modern day problems. Indeed, there is no mention of how Gray got from one place to another, such things are incidental to the story.
