A tiny speck imprisoned in a world of white. This is an exciting adventure novel told through the eyes of eleven-year-old ships boy Jeremy. It is both history and fiction. The merchant ship Henrietta Maria has been trapped in the ice of Hudson Strait for two months. It is August 6, 1631, when she finally breaks free to search for a northwest passage. The crew knows that it must leave Hudson Bay by early October to avoid being caught in the ice for the winter. The ship is leaking badly and the crew is ravaged by scurvy. Finally, Captain James announces that they cannot make it back to Hudson Strait before freeze-up. With half the crew suffering from scurvy and even lacking boots, will anyone survive in this cold and desolate place?

Bob Barton has published many children’s books, including The Bear Says North and Poetry Goes to School. He is the recipient of many literacy and arts awards. Barton has two grown children and lives with his wife in Toronto.
