National Writers Series: Hampton Sides

Shawn K Roach

Captain James Cook was a British explorer, most famous for his three voyages in the Pacific Ocean. He’s controversial for his interactions with indigenous peoples, some of which became violent—and the last of which led to Cook’s death on this island of Hawaii in 1779. Journalist and narrative non-fiction author Hampton Sides has written a book about Cook, called “The Wide Wide Sea: Imperial Ambition, First Contact and the Fateful Final Voyage of Captain James Cook.” Hampton spoke with Doug Stanton at the City Opera House in Traverse City. Doug asked him to explain the missing comma in the title of his new book.
