1781 1ed Captain James Cook Voyage Australia Zealand Hawaii Pacific MAP Rickman"Remember, the greater the opportunity, the fewer are those who see it." – James Cook James Cook was an 18th-century British explorer known for these three major world voyages. The third Pacific voyage, which began in 1776, took Cook and his crew around New Zealand and Hawaii. On this trip, Cook became well acquainted with the King of Hawaii, Kalani-opu'u.

This narrative anticipated the government's authorized account by two years. All the journals kept ... Read more
