Captain cook – Interesting biography of this master explorer and map maker, coming out in favour of him as an enlightened and scientific man in an age of slavery and empire building. Interesting read with the strange slant of also being an account of a guy who set out to dis-credit Cook as the discoverer of Australia (it’s now believed the Portuguese got there about 100 years earlier).
