Pressestimmen

"Thoroughly enjoyable. No writer has better captured the heroic enigma that was Captain James Cook than Tony Horwitz in this amiable and enthralling excursion around the Pacific." --Bill Bryson, author of "In a Sunburned Country"
"Tony Horwitz's" Blue Latitudes" is one of the best. . . full of humor. . . an elegant running account of Cook's exploits."
--"The New York Times Book Review" (cover review)
"Part history, part travelogue--and mostly just great fun. . . This is history on a global scale, and Horwitz tells it surpassingly well."
--"Los Angeles Times"
"A tour de force of evocative history, serious scholarship, and compelling writing."
--"The Washington Post"
"Part Cook biography, part travelogue, and very much a stroke of genius." --"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
"Hilarious, brainy, and balanced. . . .A trip with Horwitz is as good as it gets."
--"The Charlotte Observer"
"Tony Horwitz has done it again. . . Keen insight, open-mindedness and laugh-out-loud humor."
--"San Francisco Chronicle"
"A staggering blend of historical research, character study, sociological analysis, and intriguing tales of travel." --"The Boston Globe"
"Curiosity, intelligence, compassion and a sense of adventure. . . I love reading Tony Horwitz."
--"Chicago Tribune"
"Horwitz succeeds brilliantly in turning the English from stiff icons to flesh-and-blood human beings. The book's constant humor, honesty and judgment recall his own "Confederates in the Attic "and Bill Bryson's "A Walk in the Woods.". . . This book will keep you enthralled."
--"The Seattle Time"
