James Cook's Lost World

From Standing Room Only, 2:42 pm on 28 June 2015

Graeme Lay has written a trilogy of novels charting Captain James Cook's life. There are a lot of gaps to fill in - not about the voyages which were thoroughly documented, but about his personal life. James Cook spent most of his life at sea, leaving his wife and children in England, waiting and worrying about him during his long absences. In this third novel, the seafarer tries to settle down on land....but just can't.
