Half Moon: Henry Hudson and the Voyage That Redrew the Map of the New World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four centuries ago, Henry Hudson discovered the majestic river that now bears his name. Douglas Hunter's Half Moon is the first book-length history of the 1609 adventure that would ultimately reshape the New World and lead to the birth of a global capital—New York City. This swiftly moving tale re-creates the bubbling mixture of espionage, economics, and politics that drove men to the edges of the known world—and beyond.

In a feat of forensic cartography, Hunter offers a fresh perspective on the daring Hudson's motivation and objectives—and even on where he went. Half Moon is a rich narrative of adventure,filled with international intrigue, business drama, and the thrill of discovery.
