Henry Hudson: Discoverer of the Hudson River
Early seventeenth-century British explorer Henry Hudson led four separate voyages in search of a Northwest passage to the Orient. He and his crew survived drastic conditions, traded with American Indians, met Inuit, and sailed closer to the North Pole than any explorer before Hudson. Author Jeff C. Young captures the reader's imagination by describing the many obstacles Hudson faced, including the mutiny of his crew on his fourth and final voyage. The Hudson River and Hudson Bay are just part of this explorer's legacy. Out just in time for the 400th year celebration of the discovery of New York Harbor in 1609.
