This series presents exciting historical novels that show the diversity and strength of our American culture.

Each book is reviewed for accuracy by a historical expert.

The year is 1609. Young John Hudson accompanies his father, explorer Henry Hudson, on the first trip by Europeans up the Hudson River. John befriends Etow, a Native American boy living along the river and struggles with his father's dependence upon a mutinous crew.
