In 1767, 11-year-old Nicholas Young stowed away on Captain James Cook's Endeavour. Cook's three-year mission was secret: He was charged by the British Navy to search for a lost continent, believed to be located between the southern tip of South America and New Zealand. Nick's journal charts the voyage, with every port of call a new adventure. He befriends a native of Tahiti, taken aboard the Endeavour, is enlisted as an Able Seaman, and becomes the surgeon';s assistant. Here is one of the great voyages of discovery seen through the eyes of a boy who was actually there.

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 natives, and disease, as Nick discovers new lands, incredible creatures, and lifelong friends.

Karen Hesse takes readers on a marvelous journey throughout the book Stowaway. The story is inspired by a real boy who stowed away aboard Captain James Cook's ship Endeavour on its 1768 voyage. It is based on what little is known about 11-year-old Nicholas Young and spins an imaginative tale firmly anchored in fact. The brief diary entries adhere to the ship's actual itinerary and detail Nick's adventures.

Marinara
Very informative, vivid, living history book on the age of exploration. I read it aloud to my upper grade school kids and I skipped over a few parts that may have been accurate but were not what I'd want my children to think about (physical relationships to an island girl, foul mouth of shipmates, etc).
Overall, an engaging read.

good book

Read this with my 12yo son for his independent reader. It is perfect for the male mind with constant action and the characters are wonderfully complex. How thoughtful of the author to include a glossary. I even fancied going on a ship.
Akinozuru
I agree with other reviewers that it is good if you are interested in sailing and history. I am not sure the general reader would enjoy it that much.
It's so easy
Cool story. Recommend it.
