Sandler does a great job describing Hudson's journeys and the problems he encountered, and he gives excellent, current descriptions of the places Hudson visited. The book has two big drawbacks: 1) There are no good maps - for a book about journeys, this is hard to understand - the only maps are tiny and lack detail. 2) The book could be about 100 pages shorter - during the last few chapters, I kept This is a very thorough and interesting book on Henry Hudson, about whom little is known.

Henry Hudson himself gives more the frame than the content of the book. This is a marvelous book about one of the least-known of the great explorers. As Corey Sandler says, very little is known about Henry Hudson except for the period included within the five years of his four voyages.

This is a very enjoyable, very interesting exploration of the story of Henry Hudson. There is very little known about Hudson, and most of his logs and journals were destroyed or lost. And much of what is on the record is based on the testimony of the mutineers who were out to save their own necks.

Поставляется из: США Описание: The Tragic Legacy of the New World& Least Understood Explorer.

Was Henry Hudson one of the boldest explorers of all time, or was he merely an accidental tourist who stumbled into history? Was he the world's worst ship's captain, master of four failed expeditions, enabler of at least three mutinies, which ultimately led to his own death at the hands of his crew? Was he secretly spying for the British while sailing for the Dutch? In a unique mix of travel essay and historical sleuthing, Corey Sandler tracks down the Henry Hudson that time forgot, giving us a fascinating portrait of a tragic hero in the Age of Discovery. Through the journals and logbooks of the great explorer and his crew, Sandler retraced Hudson's journey during a yearlong, 25,000-mile trek to England, the North Pole, and deep into Canadian wilderness areas accessible only by boat. Illuminating questions that have puzzled historians for four centuries, Henry Hudson: Dreams and Obsession takes us back to a time of bold and harrowing adventure, while searching the present for traces of Henry Hudson in some of the planet's most obscure and mysterious places.
