The life of Captain Cook and the stories of his contemporary supporters and detractors. Today nobody remembers any of the big and famous politicians named in the book, all dead and forgotten except James Cook. From the first to the last page Martin Dugard had me mesmerized. The characters and the story come alive inside my mind. It reads like fiction but it's a true story, a biography. I have read all books in the "Killing" series and they are good too, but this one is even better.
Dugard not only tells us the what and the how, but even the WHY Captain Cook travelled "Father Than Any Man". So many biographers fails to tell the reasons, the driving force, behind the great accomplishments of great men and women. But not Dugard, he excels.
The Epilogue is unforgettable, there really are no coincidences, I stand in awe. I wish there was more stars to give...
