Ancient Mariner book by Ken McGoogan. In 1757, a twelve-year old sailor names Samuel Hearne set out on a journey to conquer the Far North. At 24, travelling more than 3500 miles - mostly on foot - he became the first European to reach the Arctic coast of North America. Samuel Hearne remains a focus of hot dispute. In this book, Ken McGoogan skillfully blends literary detective work and finely imagined narrative to restore this extraordinary figure to his rightful eminence. Painting a vivid portrait of life in the eighteenth century, McGoogan takes readers on and off wooden sailing ships, through Dr. Johnson's London and into the farthest reaches of native North America. Above all, this is the fascinating story of an irrepressible young man who, with only talent and fortitude as his companions, created a singular and enduring legacy.
