Overshadowed for nearly two hundred years in European scholarship by the achievements and reputation of his eldest son George Forster. J. R. Forster - principal naturalist on James Cook s second voyage - was nevertheless recognized by many contemporaries as one of the universal geniuses of the late 18th century. His journal of the voyage offers many new insights, expressed at times in quite unrestrained language, into the day-to-day relationships, life, and thinking and theory-testing on the second, and the most scientific and the most epic of Cook s voyages.
