About the Author
"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)"
"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."-- "Guardian (UK)"
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)"
"A dense but enlightening history of a highly significant eighteenth-century vessel....The narrative transforms into a page-turning, breathtaking adventure story for the ages...History at its most exciting and revealing."-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
"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)"
"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"
