CAPTAIN COOK, MAN OF THE SEA

The story of the circumnavigator from Marton in Cleveland, and his voyages around the world which made him famous. They used to say 'wooden ships, iron men' and James Cook  was the most steadfast, persistant and exacting of them all. A master mariner once said that if Cook said an island was there, then you could bet it was within one or two miles of where he said it was. No mean feat
