July 12th 1776. Captain James Cook sails from Plymouth in the Resolution
in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. It is his third amazing voyage of discovery and this is the story he might have written. Hammond Innes has created a brilliantly imagined diary, showing a great man stretched to his limits. It is a voyage that will sweep Captain Cook and his crew from the icy wasteland of the Arctic, to the tropical waters of Hawaii.
