    Henry Hudson's Fate

    The conventional wisdom is that the explorer Henry Hudson died after his mutinous crew set him adrift in a boat. Not necessarily so, writes Lawrence Millman. He retraces what could have been Hudson’s last steps and comes to some interesting conclusions. Great read for anyone (like me) interested in Hudson, history, or exploration.
