Riassunto: Captain James Cook was arguably the greatest explorer the world has ever seen. Yet he came from a humble background and received hardly any formal education. Cook first set foot in Halifax in 1758 as a highly competent―but undistinguished―warrant officer in His Majesty’s Royal Navy. When he left Atlantic Canada ten years later, he had acquired the skills and the reputation that made him the obvious choice to lead a British voyage of discovery to the Pacific. In Atlantic Canada Cook learned the importance of a healthy crew, he perfected his navigation and seamanship skills, and he mastered the arts of surveying, hydrography and cartography. He also acquired a good knowledge of mathematics and astronomy and encountered a handful of men who would become his patrons and mentors. And a few intriguing questions about this period of his life remain unanswered. James Cook’s three spectacularly successful voyages of discovery in the Pacific have long eclipsed his earlier, formative years. This book is an attempt to shed a little light on those years.

About the Author: JERRY LOCKETT is an independent historian and editor. A two-time Atlantic Journalism Awards finalist, his work has appeared in New Scientist, BBC Wildlife Magazine, Geographical Magazine, Equinox, Cruising World, Blue Water Sailing, and other publications. An experienced sailor and yachtmaster, he spent five years as a charter yacht captain in the Caribbean and now lives and sails in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Descrizione libro Formac Publishing,Canada, Canada, 2011. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The skills, knowledge and experience that took Captain James Cook to the South Seas and around the world seemed to come out of nowhere. In fact, as author Jerry Lockett has discovered, their foundation was laid during the time he spent in Atlantic Canada. His experiences on Canada s east coast and the naval men he met there shaped him to become one of the most successful explorers of all time. Cook arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1758 as a competent but undistinguished warrant officer in Britain s Royal Navy. Over the next nine years he learned the complex skill of navigation and prepared many detailed maps of the coastline and key harbours. He left nine years later with the skills and reputation that made him an obvious choice to lead a voyage of exploration to the far side of the world. In this absorbing and well-researched biography Jerry Lockett tells us of Cook s experiences as a young man and of the influential men who became his mentors and patrons. He also describes Cook s role in the key British military actions at Louisbourg and Quebec which brought an effective end to the French regime in North America.
