Y mae teithiau Captain Cook wedi swyno cynulleidfa eang ers blynyddoedd lawer, ac un o’r agweddau mwyaf dadleuol oedd ei farwolaeth. Y mae’r gyfrol hon yn cynnwys adargraffiad o un o hanesion cyfarwydd marwolaeth y capten, sef ysgrif o waith un o’r llawfeddygon ar y daith, David Samwell.
"The work of Martin Fitzpatrick and Nicholas Thomas is widely respected in the academic community. Both are distinguished senior scholars, and both have produced work of the highest quality. Readers familiar with their previous publications will not be disappointed with The Death of Captain Cook." Dr Andrew Hassam, Director of Australian Studies Program, National Centre for Australian Studies, Australia'The Death of Captain Cook and other Writings by David Samwell is a wonderful addition to the scholarship on James Cook's voyages. This book is a marvelous compilation of scholarly reflections and original materials relating to David Samwell, and the product of a rewarding collaboration between the authors. I commend it warmly to all those interested in Captain Cook, his shipmates, and their adventures in the Pacific.'Anne Salmond, Journal of Pacific History
