Author: Janice Weaver

Background has not been kind to Henry Hudson. The grandson of a trader, Hudson sailed under both British and Dutch flags, looking for a northern route to China. In Hudson, Janice Weaver has designed a compelling portrait of a man who should be remembered not for his tragic end, but for the way he advanced our understanding inside the world. Although he gave his name to a mighty river, an important strait, and a enormous bay, right now he is remembered more for the mutiny that took his life. Whatever his personal shortcomings, to sail via dangerous, ice-filled waters with only a small crew inside a rickety old boat, he need to have been someone of uncommon courage and vision. Although none of his voyages led to the discovery of a northwest passage, he did explore what is now Hudson's Bay and what is now New York City. He's been dismissed as a short-tempered man who played favorites with his crew and had an unstoppable ambition and tenacity.
