Enlightenment And Exploration In The North Pacific 1741-1805

Enlightenment and Exploration in the North Pacific 1741-1805 - Stephen W. Haycox This is a series of essays by experts from various fields from a symposium held in 1994 to commemorate the bicentennial of George Vancouver's 1792-94 voyage. It has material on Cook, Vancouver, Laperouse, and Malaspina, so, especially for someone like me, who is a bit phobic of this type of history, it is nice to get this overview of exploration voyages. However, this wasn't the fastest I've ever read a book.
