It is known that in the summer of 1768, Captain James Cook sailed from England on HMS Endeavor, beginning a three-year voyage around the world on a secret mission to discover an unknown continent at the bottom of the globe. What is less-known is that a boy by the name of Nicholas Young was a stowaway on that ship.

Newbery winner Karen Hesse re-creates Cook's momentous voyage through the eyes of this remarkable boy, creating a fictional journal filled with fierce hurricanes, warring nativs, and disease, as Nick discovers new lands, incredible creatures, and lifelong friends.
