"a tribute to our better natures"

The Guardian

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER. An inventive biography of one of the most famous ships of all time - an alluring combination of history, adventure and science.

'HISTORY BOOK OF THE YEAR' Christopher Hart, Sunday Times

From Johnson's Dictionary to campaigns for liberty, the Enlightenment was an age of endeavours. 'Endeavour' was also the name given to a commonplace, coal-carrying vessel bought by the Royal Navy in 1768 for an expedition to the South Seas. No one could have guessed that Endeavour would go on to become the most significant ship in the history of British exploration.

Endeavour famously carried Captain James Cook on his first great voyage, but her complete story has never been told before. Here, Peter Moore sets out to explore the different lives of this remarkable ship - from the acorn that grew into the oak that made her, to her rich and complex legacy.

'Fascinating and richly detailed... Peter Moore has brought us an acute insight into the ship that carried some of the most successful explorers across the world. A fine book that's definitely worth exploring' MICHAEL PALIN
