Endeavour famously carried James Cook on his first great voyage, visiting Pacific islands unknown to European geography. But Endeavour was a ship with many lives.
She was there at the Wilkes Riots in London in 1768. During the battles for control of New York in 1776 she witnessed the birth of the United States of America. As well as carrying botanists, a Polynesian priest and the remains of the first kangaroo to arrive in Britain, she transported Newcastle coal and Hessian soldiers. An inventive biography of one of the most famous ships of all time – from the oak tree it was made from to its last voyage in the American War of Independence.
