New book, 334 pages. In 1757 when 12 year old Samuel Hearne joined the Royal Navy under the famous fighting captain Samuel Hood, he embarked on a life of high adventure. This young sailor would become the first European to reach the Arctic coast of North America, the author of a classic work of exploration literature, and the inspiration for one of the greatest poems in the English language. This book restores this pioneering naturalist and anthropologist to his rightfull place of eminence, painting a vivid portrait of life in the 18th century, taking readers on and off the wooden sailing ships, through Dr Johnson's London, and away to the farthest reaches of North America.
