Going Through Hudson Strait

I’m very excited to be going through Hudson Strait this July. Following in the wake of intrepid explorers like Henry Hudson, Thomas James, William Baffin, William Edward Parry, and Andrew Robertson Gordon (who?- more about him later). They pushed through field ice in stout wooden ships, and battled scurvy and mosquitoes. But I’ll be going in style with Adventure Canada on the good ship Ocean Endeavour, eating sushi and wearing a bug jacket.


Heart of the Arctic 2015


About Season Osborne

I am a writer with a love of Arctic history. After finding a photo of Capt. Joseph-Elzéar Bernier, who claimed the Arctic for Canada in 1909, I was inspired to write my master’s thesis on Bernier’s contribution to Arctic sovereignty. This ultimately led to extensive research into Canadian and ‘foreign’ expeditions to the North, which morphed into my recent book, In the Shadow of the Pole: An Early History of Arctic Expeditions, 1871-1912.
