Maritime historian James K. Barnett discovered extraordinary journals and paintings of Captain James Cook's demanding final voyage languishing in Australian archives. Expedition artist John Webber and two young officers"Discovery" first lieutenant James Burney, and "Resolution" Master's Mate Henry Roberts--offer remarkable eyewitness accounts of initial European contact, the first reasonably accurate maps of North America's west coast, the earliest comprehensive report from the Bering Sea ice pack, and portrayals of the celebrated mariner's dramatic death at Kealakekua Bay. Particularly astonishing for depictions of landings along Hawaii, Vancouver Island, and Alaska, Barnett adds context and commentary to complete the story.
