Peter Mancall talked about his book Fatal Journey: The Final Expedition of Henry Hudson (Basic Books, 2009). In his book he recounts the expeditions of explorer Henry Hudson (1565-1611).

This lecture was held at the Museum of the City of New York on Thursday, September 17, 2009, at 6:30 p.m. in conjunction with the exhibit “Amsterdam/New Amsterdam: The Worlds of Henry Hudson,” part of an observance of the 400th anniversary of the river that bears his name.
