One of our greatest writers about the sea has written an engrossing story of one of history's most legendary maritime explorers. Patrick O'Brian's biography of naturalist, explorer and co-founder of Australia, Joseph Banks, is narrative history at its finest. Published to rave reviews, it reveals Banks to be a man of enduring importance, and establishes itself as a classic of exploration. "It is in his description of that arduous three-year voyage on the ship Endeavor] that Mr. O'Brian is at his most brilliant... He makes us understand what life within this wooden world was like, with its 94 male souls, two dogs, a cat and a goat. "-Linda Colley, New York Times "An absorbing, finely written overview, meant for the general reader, of a major figure in the history of natural science. "-Frank Stewart, Los Angeles Times " This book is] the definitive biography of an extraordinary subject. "-Robert Taylor, Boston Globe "His skill at narrative and his extensive knowledge of the maritime history ... give him a definite leg up in telling this ... story. "-Tom Clark, San Francisco Chronicle
