Captain Cook’s Voyages 1768-1779
In the mid-18th century a ‘Pacific craze’ hit Britain and France, and in the forefront of a surge of sea-borne exploration was Captain James Cook. Cook made three epic voyages, circumnavigating the globe, mapping thousands of miles of coastline, and ranging from the Bering Strait via tropical islands to Antarctic ice. His tragic death on the beach at Hawaii was the more poignant because his relations with the indigenous peoples had been so friendly.
