"In the late spring of the year 1610, the 'Discovery', a small two-masted ship, set out westward from England with twenty-three men aboard. The captain was Henry Hudson, one of the ablest explorers of his day. He was searching for the Northwest Passage to China. Among the crew were Harry Greene, who acted as the captain's jester, and Habakuk Pritchett, a young man appointed by the ship's owners to write a daily journal of the progress of the 'Discovery'. From Habakuk Pritchett's journal, (the author) has reconstructed the stirring tale of a brave explorer's last voyage. The crew, ill-assorted and argumentative, was uneasy from the very start. The 'Discovery' spent the winter of that year in the great bay that now bears Hudson's name. Henry Hudson was firm in his belief that a strait on the south-west shore of the bay would lead him through to the Pacific Ocean. But s o m e o f the men could see only disaster ahead. Led by the treacherous Harry Greene they mutinied, and Captain Hudson was set adrift in an open boat, with seven loyal followers. The mutineers then sailed for England. Presented in vivid and au th en ti c d et ail, this is an absorbing eye-witness account of tragedy and triumph." Written for the younger reader. One line of ink notation at top of half-title page. Dust jacket has been price-clipped; has light edge wear; minor edge wrinkli ng; on e s ma ll ed ge tear; one closed puncture on rear hinge; two small line indentations; a few tiny foxing marks and light soiling/rubbing.
