Fatal Journey: The Final Expedition of Henry Hudson by Peter C. Mancall

The English explorer Henry Hudson devoted his life to the search for a water route through America, becoming the first European to navigate the Hudson River in the process. InFatal Journey, acclaimed historian and biographer Peter C. Mancall narrates Hudsons final expedition.In the winter of 1610, after navigating dangerous fields of icebergs near the northern tip of Labrador, Hudsons small ship became trapped in winter ice. Provisions grew scarce and tensions mounted amongst the crew. Within months, the men mutinied, forcing Hudson, his teenage son, and seven other men into a skiff, which they left floating in the Hudson Bay.A story of exploration, desperation, and icebound tragedy,Fatal Journeyvividly chronicles the undoing of the great explorer, not by an angry ocean, but at the hands of his own men.
