This book in the collection really left me unfulfilled. The books usually in this series focus on historical times and adventures that were dangerous, but this book seemed rather tame. You are on Captain Cook's voyage around the world and that is about it. No big conflicts, no blood, no wars, just sailing around the world. Read it once, enough.

I read quite a bit of books that drew out a lot of emotion out of me in the past, but I have to say that this one topped them all. The story simply absorbed me to the point where I found myself reading the book the entire night to 4 in the mourning. It was q unique experience. Drew out quite a bit of anger, I think the even shed some tears. Great book, I'd recommend to at least give it a try = ],

This is a great nonfiction text with wonderful photographs documenting the travels, discoveries, and cultures Captain Cook encountered in his travels. This is a long text, so may be best broken into segments for a read aloud. This also may be a great text to use two column notes with students, while reading and modeling the note taking on a doc cam.

Very fun, historical discussion of what it would have been like to sail with Captain Cook.

Great illustrations.
