Overview

As New York observes the 400-year anniversary of Henry Hudson's September 1609 discovery of Manhattan Island, Algonquin historian Evan T. Pritchard (Native New Yorkers) chronicles the event from the perspective of the people who met Hudson s boat, which they at first thought was surely a great waterfowl, floating. Using all available sources (including oral history passed down to today's Algonquins) Pritchard tells the story from various perspectives... that of Hudson's body guard, scribe, and personal Judas, Robert Juet, that of Hudson himself, and that of the Eastern Algonquins who greeted Hudson as the fulfillment of ancient prophecies.
