    By Graeme Lay. Paperback, 0.572kg, 150mm x 210 mm, 191 pages, Black & White Images. Published 2017

    New Zealand remained a special place during James Cook's epic voyages of discovery and exploration. He returned to the country several times, mainly to Ship Cove in Queen Charlotte sound, which became his favourite New Zealand anchorage. In his journals he comments on the great potential of the islands of New Zealand for British settlement, forestry and farming.

    This book depicts in words, pictures and maps, the places of special importance which Cook visited or witnessed during his journeys from 1769-1777. Locations are vividly described as they are today, and as they were nearly 250 years ago.

    Fortuitously for Cook, and for todays traveller, these places are some of the most attractive destinations in New Zealand. This guide points them out, illustrates their features and explains in detail their connections to Captain Cook.
