Captain James Cook was the most prominent British explorer of the late 18th century, and perhaps one of the greatest explorers of all time. His three famous voyages of discovery to the Pacific Ocean not only contributed to Western knowledge of the region, but also contributed scientific data that advanced our ability to prevent scurvy and accurately calculate longitude at sea, as well. Join Marguerite Ragnow, curator of the James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota, as she takes us on a journey in the wake of Captain James Cook.
