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 Voyages of Captain Cook are endlessly fascinating to a wide audience, and no aspect of them has been more controversial than Cook's death. This book reprints one of the classic accounts of this episode, the vivid and lively narrative by one of the voyage surgeons, David Samwell.
