Dreams and ObsessionBook - 2007
Henry Hudson and the Dream of America is the definitive, yet nearly forgotten, story of explorer Henry Hudson's search for the Northwest Passage in the year 1610, based on the journals and logbooks of Hudson and members of his crew. The most comprehensive book to date on the life and legacy of explorer Henry Hudson: Henry Hudson and the Dream of America was painstakingly researched by author Corey Sandler, who meticulously retraced the sea routes traveled by Hudson, even journeying himself deep into Canadian wilderness areas accessible only by boat. Henry Hudson and the Dream of America answers the questions that have puzzled historians for more than three centuries: was Henry Hudson a great success or a colossal failure, for not finding the Northwest Passage? How did he survive four voyages and three mutinies? Was he secretly spying for the British while sailing for the Dutch? All this and more in one of the most fascinating stories never told.
