The Best Cook Biography

by kshimata on Sep 26, 2009

There are many biographies of explorer Captain James Cook. If you want the most complete story, this is the book. It is somewhat intimidating due to its length. However, Dr. Beaglehole's writing is so engaging that you feel as if you were there with Cook. Beaglehole studied Cook for most of his career, traveling to all the places Cook went. His admiration for Cook shines through. The extent of his knowledge is unsurpassed. Highly recommended.
