"Pays brilliant tribute to what was arguably the most significant ship in the history of British exploration" (Nick Rennison Daily Mail)

"Peter Moore’s elegant and entertaining new book offers us a fascinating biography of the Endeavour, using it as a window onto the broader world of the mid-18th-century English Enlightenment...a deeply satisfying book. It represents an intelligent, diverse, fresh and challenging approach to writing the history of exploration" (Literary Review)

"What a truly remarkable book this is…entirely fresh and original…shows how this stalwart, unpretentious, little coal bark came to embody the Age of Exploration, of Enlightenment, of Empire, and of Revolution" (Professor Iain McCalman, author of Darwin's Armada and The Reef: A Passionate History, from Captain Cook to Climate Change)
