The Half Moon on the Hudson
Explorers in a New World, Part Six
Class set order code: 9165S
Henry Hudson, though English, was captain of a Dutch ship called the Half Moon that he was tasked with sailing north around Canada to China. It was, of course, an impossible request. Henry gave up that effort and tried to find a passageway through the great continent instead, but he ran into trouble time and again. He never found what he was looking for, but his name remains on maps of the United States today.
