James Cook was one of the great explorers of the Pacific. Why was he so successful? And how does this relate to our lives today? Cook remains an inspirational character for students today. From very humble beginnings to having a Space Shuttle named after your ship is evidence of a very special character. This story is an introduction to a lot more reading on this great explorer. Cook currently is experiencing an image problem with some critics due to his association with the colonisation of the Pacific nations. Cook was a sailor and navigator who had one objective; to find the Great South Land. This objective was never realised and the subsequent colonising of the Pacific countries was done by many European powers not by Cook. Sentences, sight words and complex words have been repetitively presented to make it easy to practise these words with increasing fluency throughout the story.
