Description

New Zealand remained a special place during James Cook's epic voyages of discovery and exploration. He returned to the country several times, mainly to Ship Cove in Queen Charlotte sound, which became his favourite New Zealand anchorage. In his journals he comments on the great potential of the islands of New Zealand for British settlement, forestry and farming. This book depicts, in words, maps and photographs, the places of special importance which James Cook visited, first in HMS Endeavour in 1769, and then in HMS Resolution in 1773 and 1777. Fortuitously for Cook, and for the contemporary visitor, these are some of the most attractive locations in New Zealand. This guide will illustrate the locations, lead you to them, and explain their provenance, with contemporary travel detail along with historical excerpts drawn from the journals of Captain James Cook.
