  1. Dear Chase,
    I never heard of James Cook, but he sounds like he was a very successful explorer! It is really mind-blowing that he circled Antartica. Today, only scientists can go there, and even they have trouble getting there! I can’t believe that he circled the world twice! I would never be able to do that, at least on a boat. How did he survive that?
