Highly readable - Terry Waite, The Sunday Times

Richard Hough's biography is as fascinating as it is felicitous in style and entertaining in content - Field Marshal Lord Carver, The Sunday Telegraph

Hough tells the story with skill to give a convincing smell of the sea - Flora Fraser, The Times

Captain James Cook does handsome justice to the navigator - Ian Thomson, The Independent

In Cook's relatively short and adventurous life (1728-79) he voyaged to the eastern and western seaboards of North America, the North and South Pacific and the Arctic and Antarctic bringing about a new comprehension of the world's geography and its people's. He was the linking figure between the grey specualtion of the early eighteenth century and the industrial age of the first half of the nineteenth century.

Richard Hough's biography is full of new insights and interpretations of one of the world's greatest mariners.

Richard Hough with his high reputation as a biographer and naval historian, is the author of many books. He wrote THE MURDER OF CAPTAIN COOK in 1979 to mark the bicentenary of the explorer's death in that year.
