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.

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

A New York Times Bestseller

A School Library Journal Best Book 2000

Based on actual Endeavour stowaway Nicholas Young, this story uses the real 1768 diaries of Captain Cook and shipboard naturalist Joseph Banks to bring Young from a forgotten footnote into a living, breathing person.
