The Last Voyage of Captain Cook
The first time all of Ledyard’s writings have been published together, The Last Voyage of Captain Cook was published in March 2005 by the National Geographic Society. It contains his 1783 memoir of the Cook voyage, his letters and his journals from his Siberian and Egyptian expeditions. William F. Buckley wrote in the New York Times Book Review in 2000 that Ledyard’s writing was “loaded with moral and institutional wisdom… the reader is caught up at once in the narrative and the young seamen’s stylistic finesse.” James Zug wrote the introduction and edited and annotated the book, which is a companion volume to American Traveler.
