      James Cook (–) was the first to map New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific islands. He formed our modern image of the world and refuted once and for all the existence of a mythical Terra Australis Incognita. James Cook is the legendary hero of the early years of travel and exploration. Until the successes of Captain James Cook, the Pacific was very imperfectly known despite earlier voyages by men like Abel Tasman, employed by the Dutch East India Company, and William Dampier, whose observations of the coasts, winds, and other natural features were so accurate that when he came back to England he was asked to lead a government exploring expedition.

      James Cook, one of the greatest navigators, explorers and cartographers of the Age of Enlightenment, had humble beginnings as a farm boy. Born on 27 October to a local Yorkshire lass and a Scottish immigrant labourer, Cook was a bright, hardworking student. This well prepared abridged edition of Captain James Cook's journals is a specialized book of interest to people studying the exploration of the Pacific and/or the British Navy of that time period. Other people might find sections of it dry reading.
