Author(s): Rob Mundle
From Sailor to Legend - the story of Captain James Cook Captain James Cook is one of the greatest maritime explorers of all time. Written with colour, sweep and the authority of Robert Mundle's five decades as a competitive sailor, maritime journalist and broadcaster, this extensively researched new biography of Cook will put you on the quarterdeck with the great navigator as he painstakingly guides his ship through dangerous, reef-strewn waters. You will also be alongside the captain when his ship is a wave-width away from annihilation; and at the helm, when he calls for the anchor to be weighed and his men to heave hard on the lines, and at the start of an exciting new voyage. Robert Mundle is also the author of Flinders and Bligh.
