A good book — Discoveries: The Voyages of Captain Cook

This is actually a 2018 reissue of a 2003 book for the 250th anniversary of the departure of Endeavour. While the broad outlines of all three of Cook’s voyages are covered the emphasise is more on the interactions between the crew / Cook with the natives of the Pacific islands with observations on South Pacific cultures. For a good summary of the three voyages and maps of the voyages I would recommend James Cook the Journals.
