Describes the four famous voyages of this explorer who charted the coast of North America, explored the Arctic Circle, mapped the islands of Novaya Zemlya, and discovered the river in New York, known today as the Hudson River.

A famed explorer of the early 1600s, Henry Hudson was driven by his desire to find a sea passage to Asia. He tried sailing both north-east, above Europe and Russian and Northwest, hoping to find a channel through the continent of North America.

During Hudson's four famous voyages, he explored the Arctic Circle, charted the coast of North America from North Carolina to Newfoundland and mapped the islands of Novaya Zemlya to the north of Russia. On hi third voyage, made under the flag of the Dutch East India Company, Hudson landed at the mouth of great river in New York that today bears his name and claimed a large area for Holland.
