Cruising with Captain Cook amongst Cannibals ePub and PDF Available
In August and September 1774 Captain James Cook sailed westward across the Pacific, on the small ship Resolution and chartered the New Hebrides and New Caledonia, discovering strange cultures and people.

In August and September 2008 Craig Cormick sailed eastwards across the Pacific, on the luxury cruise liner Pacific Dawn, visiting Vanuatu and New Caledonia, discovering new cultures and some very strange people.

Cruising with Cook amongst Cannibals is much more than your average travel book. It is a satirical take on 'in the footsteps of…' books, as the author attempts to justify his claim that taking a cruise ship gives him insights into Cook's second voyage on the Resolution.

The book also compares the modern luxurious world of cruising, often looking under the gloss, with the hardships of the 18th Century, seeking the lesser-known stories about Cook and his contemporaries.

The book explores many largely uncharted regions of its own: Death at sea. Modern piracy. Shipwrecks. Sexual misadventures. Terrorism on liners. The plagues of line-dancers. The elusive search for a Melanesian penis cover. And of course cannibalism.

The travelogues of modern day Vanuatu and New Caledonia contrast with the experiences of Cook, as described by himself and his crewmates in their journals, as well as looking at the personalities and difficulties (and some difficult personalities) on board the Resolution.
