Into The Blue - Boldly Going where Captain Cook Has Gone Before
Tony Horwitz,      
ISBN: 1865088994
Allen & Unwin, Australia, 2002.   Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Very Good Condition/. . Into The Blue offers clear-eyed, vivid, and highly entertaining reassurance that there are still outlandish worlds to be discovered.' Caroline Alexander, author of The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition Captain James Cook's three epic journeys in the eighteenth century were the last great voyages of discovery. His ships sailed some 150 000 miles, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from Tasmania to Oregon, from Easter Island to Siberia. Before Cook set off for the Pacific in 1768, one third of the globe remained blank. By the time of his violent death in Hawaii in 1779, there was little left to discover and the map of the world was substantially complete. Tony Horwitz vividly recounts Cook's voyages and the exotic scenes he encountered: tropical orgies, taboo rituals, human sacrifice, hip-throbbing Tahitian dancers, New Zealand cannibals, Hawaiian surfers, and Australian Aborigines sealed off from the rest of the world for thousands of of years. 480 pages.
