Henry Hudson: His Times and His Voyages

Henry Hudson's story is one of daring, determination, and discovery. 

Henry Hudson: His Times and His Voyages is a dramatic narrative of nautical adventure.  Edgar Mayhew Bacon takes us on all of Hudson's voyages, from the journeys that took him further north than any explorer before him, to the coasts of Iceland and Greenland, and the mighty Hudson River.  It tells of early interactions with Native-Americans, both peaceful and hostile.  Lastly, we follow Hudson on his final voyage that took him to Canada and Hudson Bay--where he met his tragic end.
