About Book

Toby Robinson has grown up with his uncle's stories and wants to join the navy. His uncle finds him a post as cabin boy on His Majesty's Bark Endeavour, under Captain James Cook, in the hope that it will put his nephew off a life at sea. 

Assisting the ship's one-handed cook, John, Toby shares this historic voyage, its purpose to track the passage of Venus across the face of the sun, then to seek Terra Australis Incognita, believed to exist, but at the moment just a shape placed on the map by cartographers.

The sailors, artists and scientists who shared the voyage come to life in this story, seen through the eyes of twelve-year-old Toby, who brings to life the trials and tribulations of life at sea, as well as the wonders of the South Sea Islands and the naming of places discovered during the voyage.
