In Blue Latitudes, Tony Horwitz departs on his own voyage of discovery.  He discusses the details of Cook's voyages throughout the world on the hig seas. Adventuring in Cook's foot steps, he relives the captain's journeys and explores their legacy in lands Cook made famous. Cook traveled from the Artic to the Antarctic, Tahiti, Siberia, Easter Island to the Great Barrier reef off the coast of Austrailia. Some of his adventures include discovering new beast, narrowly avoiding shoals and having to abandon ship and naming new places. This book is great for anyone seeking the adventure of old times past with a current time frame. when reading you get the feeling of discovery, of first visiting these remote areas, then the realization of what and where one actually is. It truly brings readers full cirlce of how far man has traveled and seen, in this globalized world we currently live in.
