Introduction: History's man -- 1. England's Atlantic. Cook's maps -- Banks's books -- 2. To the South Sea. Punished Henry Stephens seaman -- As miserable a set of people as are this day upon Earth -- As favourable to our purpose as we could wish -- In order to seize upon the people -- He was laughed at by the Indians -- Alarming and I may say terrible circumstance -- Calamitous situation we are at present in -- My intentions certainly were not criminal -- 3. Towards the South Pole. Inhospitable parts I am going to -- Mingling my tears with hers -- We are the innocent cause of this war -- Varieties of the human species -- Southern hemisphere sufficiently explored -- Now I am going to be confined -- 4. To the North Pacific. I allow because I cannot prevent it -- Act that I cannot account for -- They may fear, but never love us -- Squalls and rain and so dark -- Dream that we could not reconcile ourselves to -- Epilogue: Cook's afterlives
