#KHIS2110, Sea of Dangers:
Captain Cook and His Rivals in the South Pacific
by Geoffrey Blainey
6-1/4" x 9-1/4", Hard Cover, 322 pages
"A fast, interesting and exciting read."  Wes Wood


I found this book easy to read and very entertaining giving a feel for the adventure of the explorer.
I have a better understanding of Cook seeing his adventures embedded in the wider happenings of the age
It added to a larger picture of the excitement at the time and the competition to discover the last and
greatest continent which was supposed to be a source of riches for the country that would discover
and establish a settlement there.
Only a few token mentions of tattoo.
