Cook’s Cook: the Cook Who Cooked For Captain Cook – Gavin BishopEducational, Gift and Keepsake Books, History, Local Christchurch Authors, New Products, NZ Authors, Reference
Cook’s Cook by Gavin Bishop follows the 1768 journey of James Cook’s H.M. Endeavour with his ship’s cook, the one-handed John Thompson, as story teller.
Cook’s Cook tells multiple stories, through real recipes from the ship’s mess, events on board and the places the ship travelled on its way to the Pacific.
Here are stories of social class, hierarchy and race; stories of explorers and the people of the land; the story of one of the world’s most famous explorers told through a fresh new lens.
This beautiful children’s book is full of information drawn from extensive research alongside evocative illustrations.
Written and illustrated by Gavin Bishop.
