From the Publisher : Founded in by J. Henry Hudson may have been present on that occasion and consequently developed a lifelong interest in Arctic exploration. It is certain that he was well informed about Arctic geography and that his competence as a navigator was such that two wealthy companies chose him to conduct hazardous explorations. On reaching the edge of the polar ice pack , he followed it east until he reached the Svalbard Spitsbergen archipelago. From there he extended explorations made earlier by the 16th-century Dutch navigator Willem Barents , who had also sought a Northeast Passage to Asia.
Finding his way again blocked by ice fields, he returned to England in August. Shortly after his return, Hudson was lured to Amsterdam to undertake a third northeast voyage under contract to the Dutch East India Company. While there, he heard reports of two possible channels to the Pacific across North America. George Weymouth. John Smith.

Although his interest in a Northwest Passage had been aroused, Hudson agreed to return directly to Holland if his northeast voyage should prove unsuccessful. Hudson sailed from Holland in the Half Moon on April 6, When head winds and storms forced him to abandon his northeast voyage, he ignored his agreement and proposed to the crew that they should instead seek the Northwest Passage. While cruising along the Atlantic seaboard, Hudson put into the majestic river encountered by the Florentine navigator Giovanni da Verrazzano in , which was thenceforth to be known as the Hudson. After ascending it for about miles km to the vicinity of what is now Albany , New York, Hudson concluded that the river did not lead to the Pacific.
The search for the Northeast Passage
During his survey of the region, Hudson passed within miles km of a party led by French explorer Samuel de Champlain , who had ventured south from his base at Quebec , but the two groups were not aware of each other. On his way to Holland, Hudson docked at Dartmouth , England. The English government then ordered him and the English members of his crew to desist from further explorations for other countries.
His log and papers were sent to Holland, where his discoveries were soon made known. This phenomenon suggested that a great body of water lay beyond the strait.

Hudson was confident that it was the Pacific Ocean. Finding himself in James Bay at the southernmost extremity of Hudson Bay and with no outlet to the Pacific to be found, Hudson cruised aimlessly until winter overtook him. In the close confinement of an Arctic winter, quarrels arose. Hudson angered one of his crew, Henry Green, by first giving him a gray gown and then, when Green displeased him, taking it back and giving it to another.

Robert Juet, the mate, had been demoted, and he conspired with Green and others to mutiny. Once the homeward voyage had begun, the mutineers seized Hudson, his son, and seven others, casting them adrift in Hudson Bay in a small open boat on June 22, Although the Discovery sailed home to England, neither of the ringleaders returned with her, having been killed, together with several others, in a fight with Eskimos.
No more was ever heard of Hudson and his small party, although in to another explorer found the ruins of a shelter, possibly erected by the castaways. As a commander, Hudson was more headstrong than courageous. He violated his agreement with the Dutch and failed to suppress the mutiny. He played favourites and let morale suffer. Unexpectedly, Welch then took another hiatus; this time to get his mind together, and to practice and research his musical skills and sell his image. The leave of absence was a big mistake; he came back, and began gigging at some major clubs, but it never really happened for him like he envisioned.
