Captain Cook


Alistair Maclean – James Cook loved to travel and explore, and find new territories. He made three major voyages. One of the reasons of the voyage was to find out if there was another continent in the southern seas. Though this was not found, he discovered and accurately recorded quite a few islands. The second voyage especially was a long, extensive trip. The third trip was made to see if there was a northwest passage above North America. Though this was not found, more discoveries were made. Tragically, Cook met his death in Hawaii, at the hands of the natives.
