Blogger raves about TUPAIA
"Everyone has heard the story of Captain Cook and his expedition adventures, but did you ever know he had a Polynesian navigator?"
No, I did not, says Jo Ann Hakola, of the Journey of a Bookseller blog, and follows this up with a thoughtful and enthusiastic review.
"Mrs. Druett does an excellent job of offering her well-researched facts in a non-fiction story that reads almost fiction. It's not the least boring," she reveals, going on to confess that this is quite a statement, as she does not generally like non-fiction.
"Mrs. Druett makes you care about this man," she adds.
"If you have an interest in history, Captain Cook, or just in interesting tales, this book will be a pleasure for you to read."
