About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Travel Books series was created during the early part of the twentieth century, the aim being to illustrate the history of geographical discovery by gathering together eyewitness accounts from selected journeys of importance. All of the volumes in the series are carefully edited, each containing a concise, yet informative, introduction, a timeline, and numerous illustrations. In this book the focus is on early journeys made through the north-western and north-eastern passages. Accounts are included of voyages by Martin Frobisher, John Davis, Henry Hudson, and William Barents. This a fascinating collection that will remain of value to anyone with an interest in Arctic geography and the history of exploration.
