Summary: A narrative of Cook's three voyages to the Pacific and Australasia : the first voyage (in "Endeavour") and the second (in "Resolution" and "Adventure") are largely retold in the third person, with some quotations from Cook's own writings (p. 1-228); the third voyage (in "Resolution" and "Discovery") consists of copious sections of Cook's own account plus accounts by Captains King and Clerke, in addition to the third-person narrative (p. 229-479).
