Looking out from his ship, Captain James Cook saw a field of ice disappearing into the horizon. Cook and his crew had crossed the Antarctic Circle in search of a mythical Southern Continent, but could proceed no farther. Captain Cook had sailed thousands of miles on the Pacific Ocean, exploring many Pacific islands like Hawaii, Australia, and New Zealand. He made charts that would be used into the twentieth century and proved no mythical continent existed. Author Stephen Feinstein examines the life of this famed British explorer.
