Detailed Product Description
New York, Henry Holt and Company, New York, 2002, 1st edition. 480 pp, end paper maps, source notes, bibliography, index. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

In an exhilarating tale of historic adventure, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Confederates in the Attic" retraces the voyages of Captain James Cook, the Yorkshire farm boy who drew the map of the modern world. The author follows in the footsteps of Captain Cook, examining the legend and history of the great explorer. 

The book compares the current conditions of the places Cook visited to what Cook documented at the time, and describes the different legacies Cook has left behind. Horwitz begins with his experience as a volunteer deckhand on the replica of HM Bark Endeavour. Some of the places Horwitz visits in his travels include Australia, the small island nation of Niue, the Society Islands, Tonga, New Zealand, the birthplace and home of Cook in North Yorkshire England, Alaska, and Hawaii.
