CAPTAIN JAMES COOK

This and the following biography of Leonardo da Vinci are both short, explicit books which indicate their specific contributions to society and the advancement of learning yet are personal enough to give pictures of their figures as human beings. The familiar story of Cook's life is broadened effectively by the careful explanation of international motives and the rise of scientific knowledge, which together sparked the voyages of the Endeavour and the Resolution.
