In the summer of 1768, an eleven-year-old butcher's apprentice named Nicholas Young climbed aboard a ship, hid from the captain and crew, and waited to be carried far away from the life he hated in London. Nick didn't know it, but the ship he chose, the H.M.S. Endeavour, was captained by James Cook and bound for an astonishing adventure circumnavigating the globe. Based on exhaustive historical research, it's an extraordinary fictionalized account of a real boy on a real journey.
