Description

Washington Post
"[Fatal Journey] recounts the puzzling episode of a captain overthrown by an enraged faction of his own crew.... [A] short and dependable guide to what befell a great but flawed explorer."

Newark Star-Ledger
"For fans of Mutiny on the Bounty and The Caine Mutiny, Fatal Journey will only add to the store and lore of desperate actions on the high seas.... [Mancall] combines forensic history with pulsing narrative to achieve a highly credible account of how the mission unraveled."

Boston Globe
"Bracingly told."

Boston Globe
"Fatal Journey is a rich, exhilarating narrative of exploration, desperation, and ice-bound tragedy."

History Magazine
"Mancall places Hudson and the mutiny in the context of their age, a time when economic and cultural forces lured explorers and sailors into the dangers of a new world in search of profit and fame."

Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research
"Mancall, in this fascinating account based on a great deal of research, provides a reasonable explanation of Hudson's likely fate, after probably surviving for a polar winter or two.... I recommended this excellent book to both armchair explorers and serious students of the history of the Arctic."
