AUTHOR

Horwitz, Tony

SUMMARY

"[Horwitz] reaches his stride, however, when he recounts his experiences in many of the places where Cook stopped: Tahiti, Bora-Bora....A terrific reporter, Horwitz investigates how the places he visits have changed and catalogs the effects that Western civilization, as personified by Cook, has had on the indigenous peoples....Horwitz is intrepid in tracking down the modern manifestations of this legacy. But what he also does, and what makes this book so absorbing, is intersperse among all the details of life today in these far-flung places an elegant running account of Cook's exploits."Horwitz, Tony is the author of 'Blue Latitudes Boldly Going Where Captain Cook Has Gone Before', published 2003 under ISBN 9780312422608 and ISBN 0312422601.
