Captain of the Discovery. The story of Captain George Vancouver.  By Roderick Haig-Brown. A New Historical Series For Young people. Great Stories of Canada.

This is a thrilling story of exploration, of strange seas and coasts and new lands whose natives were not always friendly.  Originally part of Captain Cook's crew, this is the story of Vancouver's later expeditions to the South Sea islands and the American coast as he searched for a north-west passage between 1791 and 1795.
