Abstract

[Extract] Geoffrey Blainey has produced a readable introduction to Cook's Endeavour voyage of 1769–1771 that is suitable for non-specialist readers. He acknowledges his debts to J.C. Beaglehole and John Dunmore, but clearly has developed his own considered interpretations of the journals of Cook and Banks. Those journals colour his account, and he quotes from them to good effect.
