The life of Captain James Cook by Andrew Kippis( Book )

172 editions published between 1778 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissenting minister Andrew Kippis (1725-95) was a Member of the Society of Antiquaries and of the Royal Society. With this work of 1788, he was the first biographer of Captain James Cook (1728-79), although several of Cook's colleagues, including Johann Reinhold Forster in 1778 and David Samwell in 1786, had previously published memoirs of their service with him. Believing that 'his public transactions ... are the grand objects to which the attention of his biographer must be directed', Kippis draws on the official Admiralty accounts of Cook's voyages and focuses on his professional life. The book was criticised at the time for failing to convey Cook's personality and motivation, stressing his achievements without putting them in context. However, it remained the only biography for forty years, and shaped public perception of Cook as a brilliant navigator and commander, a fearless explorer and an exemplary British hero

Theirs had been a family of men ... until baby Betsy turned up on the ranch doorstep. Now every one of them pulled together to solve a mystery and to protect one of their own. Family first was the Randolph way. It was a code Kathi Sable knew Ryder Randolph lived--and would die--by. And it was why she had to keep her secrets and her distance from the man she'd never stopped loving. Except when Ryder was questioned in the death of a mutual friend, she had no choice but to seek him out, to defend the father of her child. But would he ever forgive her for building a wall of secrets between them ...?
