Captain Cook: Obsession and Discovery

It's high adventure, triumph and tragedy as we journey around the world in the wake of one of the greatest explorers of all time - James Cook.

Cook expert and bestselling British author Vanessa Collingridge searches for the man behind the legend as she traces his story in a series that is part biography, part travelogue - and completely enthralling.
