Henry Ellis was an 18th-century voyager who sought to find a northwest passage from the Hudson Bay. The expedition, however, proved that no such passage existed. And while Ellis and the crew felt that the excursion was a failure, ultimately, it proved to be quite valuable in that it provided information about the life and culture of Eskimos, observations of the behavior of the sea and the tides, and, of course, that no Northwest Passage existed. This work also includes a historical perspective on the first 23 English voyages that all attempted to discover the Northwest Passage.
