Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is known that in the summer of 1768, Captain James Cook sailed from England on H.M.S Endeavour, beginning a three-year voyage around the world on a secret mission to discover an unknown continent at the bottom of the globe. What is less known is that a boy by the name of Nicholas Young was a stowaway on that ship.

Newbery winner Karen Hesse re-creates Cook's momentous voyage through the eyes of this remarkable boy, creating a fictional journal filled with fierce hurricanes, warring natives, and disease, as Nick discovers new lands, incredible creatures, and lifelong friends.

Synopsis:

In this "New York Times" bestseller, Newbery Medal winner Hesse recreates Captain James Cook's momentous voyage through the eyes of his remarkable stowaway--a young boy named Nicholas Young. Illustrations.
