Peter Mancall

By Joe Donahue


Albany, NY – Henry Hudson, the English explorer who gave his name to NY's Hudson River and Canada's Hudson Bay, lost his sailing ship to mutineers. They left him, his teenage song, and seven men in a small boat and sailed back to England - where mutineers risked a hanging. It was a "Fatal Journey" which is also the title of USC historian Peter Mancall's new book on the death of Hudson.
