Captain Cook's Early Life James Cook was born in 1728 and was the son of a farmworker in the north of England.

How Captain Cook Died In Hawaii when the hawaii islanders thought that Captain Cook was their great god Lono, they had a big welcome ceremory.For three weeks Captain Cook and his crew stayed at the island and were given great gifts to honor him. Then the islanders made it clear that they had to go. Captain Cook's ship was damaged and came back to Hawaii again for repairs, but the Hawaiians didn't want him back because they were sick of entertaining the greedy crew . After some arguements Captain Cook decided to talk to the islanders chief, he took some men to guard him but the guards were attacked and left. As Cook turned to the shore a Hawaiian strucked his head and then another islander stuck a dagger in his neck. When James Cook was 16 years old, he moved to a fishing village where he worked as a shop boy. this is when James Cook felt the 'lure' (temptation of the sea) when he was gazing out the window of the shop. When Captain Cook found that he was interested in the sea Where Captain Cook Traveled These are the places Captain Cook went in order: 1st voyage (1768 - 1771), Madeira, Rio de Janeiro (in Brazil),Tierra del Fuego(southern tip of South America),Tahiti (where he observed Venus), New Zealand, Australia, Batavia, then returns to England.

before he left to go home he wanted to search
for now what is called Australia. In 1644 a man
called Abel Tasman who reached New Zealand
