Fatal Journey

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Historian and biographer Peter C. Mancall describes Henry Hudson's failed final voyage in the winter of 1610. His book Fatal Journey: The Final Expedition of Henry Hudson narrates the undoing of the great explorer, not by the ocean, but at the hands of his own men.

The courage of Hudson and other 17th century explorers is almost unbelievable.
Mancall‘s book does great honor to the pioneers who opened the new world to the old. Sail on!
