Summary
Sailing with Cook: Inside the Private Journal of James Burney RN is about the young James Burney<U+0146>s experience of shipboard life and the momentous events that took place during the second voyage of exploration when he sailed with Captain Cook on the Resolution and then on the Adventure between 1772 and 1773. This book features facsimile pages extracted from the private journal and is beautifully illustrated with maps, portraits, contemporary documents and artefacts, including information text boxes on people and issues. It follows the successful format of other books such as In Bligh<U+0146>s Hand: Surviving the Mutiny on the Bounty
