Description

Ages 8 to 14 years. In the early 1600s, England was among the many countries in search of a northern passage to trade with the Far East. After many explorers failed, Henry Hudson was asked to try. This fascinating new book describes Hudson's exciting voyages and the many hardships he encountered, from becoming frozen in ice to the eventual mutiny of his crew. Features include: map of Hudson's routes; the Muscovy Company; the customs and cultures of the Penebscot, Lenape, and Mahican tribes; the ships and their cargo; the duties and pastimes of the crew while at sea; early navigational equipment; Hudson's discoveries of Hudson's Bay, Greenland, and the Hudson River; the Hudson's Bay Company and the fur trade; a recipe from the period; how England benefited from Hudson's expeditions.
