Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] fantastically detailed story . . . a joy of a biography, offering up a blizzard of maritime and political fascinations . . . Moore has written a book that makes the case for [Endeavour] both compelling and irrefutable―and offers up besides an immense treasure trove of fact-filled and highly readable fun.” --Simon Winchester, The New York Times Book Review

"Enlightening . . . Moore goes well beyond simple history or a mere tracking of the Endeavour's exploits. Though the minutiae may seem daunting at first, readers should stick with it, as the narrative transforms into a page-turning, breathtaking adventure story for the ages . . . History at its most exciting and revealing." --Kirkus (starred review)

"In recounting the history of the Endeavour, Moore illuminates the improbable life of a humble collier . . . In learning about one boat’s world-straddling feats, readers also learn about the impetuous spirit that transformed society during the decades she sailed . . . With an acute eye, Moore limns the conflicting human impulses in the first episodes of this epoch-making drama. Maritime history that opens onto much more." --Booklist (starred 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." ―Christopher Hart, Sunday Times (U.K.)

"Endeavour is an extraordinary book about an unlikely ship that defined an age . . . The book reminded me of one of those opulent 18th-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." ―Gerard DeGroot, The Times (U.K.)

"Moore’s richly detailed book is an engrossing love letter to a word, an attitude and a ship: it is an endeavour that honours Endeavour, without denying the death and destruction that followed in her wake." ―Ruth Scurr, The Guardian

"Endeavour is a deeply satisfying book. It represents an intelligent, diverse, fresh and challenging approach to writing the history of exploration. 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." ―Robert Mayhew, Literary Review
