This book describes the background and discoveries of England's Captain James Cook. It enters the exotic world revealed in the paintings of the artists who accompanied him on his three Pacific voyages between 1768 and 1780. A time line sets his discoveries against the backdrop of Britain's rivalry with France and Spain and with her own American colonists.
