" I had ambition not only to go farther than any man has been before me, but
as far as it was possible for a man to go " James Cook
It's high adventure, triumph and tragedy as we journey around the world in the wake of one of the greatest explorers of all time James Cook. A hero to some and a curse to others, this son of an English farm labourer described more of the globe than any other man, in three incredible voyages. Geographer, historical consultant and
best selling British author Vanessa Collingridge searches for the man behind the legend as she traces his story in a series that is part biography, part travelogue and completely enthralling.
