Resolution by A.N. Wilson

Resolution is the loosely fictionalised story of Captain Cook’s second voyage, begun in 1772, in search of the mythological Great Southern Continent. Told through the eyes of seventeen-year-old German linguist, artist, and writer George Forster, son of the expedition’s naturalist, Reinhold Forster, it is replete with rolling swells, treacherous reefs, perilous storms, and sightings of unknown lands, not to mention scurvy, sauerkraut, cannibals, and albatross pie. As a Boys’ Own adventure, it is irresistible.
