Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book, part of the "Exploring the World" series, describes the four main voyages of Henry Hudson as well as briefly discussing the mysteries that surrounded Hudson's life. The book Doak writes clearly and gives information in a way that young readers will understand the facts without being overwhelmed with other historical trivia. The book is well designed in layout. Full-color pictures show historical paintings and maps of Hudson's time period, photographs of the areas that Hudson explored, and paintings of people associated with Hudson. A similar book is Henry Hudson by Claude Hurwicz, which is part of the "Famous Explorers" series geared for a slightly younger audience, and thus some of the information is lost. This "Exploring the World" book is written for an older audience, yet the information is not oversimplified. Doak has created a good source for grade school book reports on Henry Hudson. The author also includes a glossary, a did-you-know section, important dates, important people, other books, Web sites, museums, and an index at the end for readers who need or want to find out more information. Thus readers who are doing biography reports will find this book an excellent source. 2003, Compass Point Books,

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Each of these series titles presents basic information on the subject's early life, his motivations, and highlights of his more important expeditions. The accessible texts provide historical context: they are rich with information on the relationships between these explorers and contemporary figures. Doak also discusses the impact the arrival these men and their fleets had on native peoples. The author is careful to indicate when few historical documents exist and what historians have deduced from other supporting evidence. Plentiful, average-quality photos and reproductions illustrate these accessible titles.-Jennifer England, The Berkeley Carroll School, Brooklyn, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
