In the early 1600s, England asked Henry Hudson to search for the northern passage to trade with the Far East. This fascinating new book introduces children to Hudson’s exciting voyages, and explores the many hardships he encountered, from his ship becoming frozen in ice to the eventual mutiny of his crew. A full-color map details Hudson’s routes, and a featured recipe will give children a taste of what life was like aboard a ship.
