ABOUT THE BOOK:
Voyages to the Pacific Ocean during the 1790’s were exciting and dangerous for those who attempted them. One of the few who did during those years following Captain James Cook’s discovery of the Hawaiian Islands was a Scotsman named Archibald Menzies.
Originally published in 1920 and 1993 both versions of Menzies’ Hawaii and Alaska writings are available in this edition for the first time in one volume.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Archibald Menzies was born in March 1754 in Perthshire, Scotland. He studied botany and medicine at Edinburgh and later joined the Royal Navy and served in Nova Scotia. He returned again to the region on board the Discovery as a naturalist accompanying Captain George Vancouver on his trip around the world. During his voyages to the northern Pacific in 1792-1794, Menzies visited Hawaii and Alaska, keeping detailed records of his visits while there. He died in February 1842 and is buried in the All Souls Cemetery at Kensal Gardens, London.
