Layout 1Great press set up by my colleague Shona Cook for Peter Mancall’s riveting book about Henry Hudson’s titular expedition to Canada’s north.  In his Maclean’s feature on the book, Brian Bethune calls Fatal Journey “a context-setting gem that explains why early modern Englishmen kept putting themselves in mortal peril in the Arctic.”  Read the rest here.
