Editorial Reviews

Review

Endeavour is a dazzling combination of science and adventure, lyrically evocative descriptions of lush tropical landscapes and salt-stung seascapes, and a portrait of an age of 'magnificent geniality'...Endeavour is an absolute joy from start to finish and surely my history book of the year.

-- "Sunday Times (London)"<br ><br >

Endeavour is an extraordinary book about an unlikely ship that defined an age...The book reminded me of one of those opulent eighteenth-century feasts enjoyed by King George-endless exotic dishes all delivered with exquisite style. Like the age it recounts, it is a book of energy, creativity and self-confidence.

-- "Times (London)"<br ><br >

A deeply satisfying book...Paying homage to the remarkable lives of a single vessel, Peter Moore also gives the Endeavour a new lease of life long after its sinking.

-- " Literary Review (London)"<br ><br >

Acute insight into the ship that carried some of the most successful explorers across the world. A fine book that's definitely worth exploring.

--"Michael Palin, English comedian, actor, television presenter, and author of Erebus"

--"Sunday Times (London)"

Moore's richly detailed book is an engrossing love letter to a word, an attitude, and a ship...that honors Endeavour, without denying the death and destruction that followed in her wake.
