Captain Cook and the Endeavour is the story of a poor boy from Yorkshire, born into a farming family but destined for so much more.

The little ship Endeavour shudders and stops, slewing violently to the east. The grinding sound of rock on wood vibrates through the hull. The captain, Lieutenant James Cook, knows his ship and crew are in real danger. To the west lies a dark uncharted coastline, and to the east Pacific Ocean stretches thousands of miles to South America. They are alone, beyond help...
