Voyage of the Endeavour

audio icon Listen to the show

March 5, 1998 -- Two hundred years ago Captain James Cook and naturalist Joseph Banks traveled the world on the HM Bark Endeavour in their celebrated voyages of discovery. Now, a replica of that ship is making an 8-month tour of North America's east coast, giving amateur crews the opportunity to sample life at sea -- 18th century style. NPR/National Geographic Society's Radio Expeditions traveled aboard the 109-foot HM Bark Endeavour as it sailed to its first stop in the United States -- West Palm Beach, Florida.
