John Davis, "The Navigator", is deservedly the favorite of historian and biographer among the early English sailors in Canadian waters. He was dedicated to his work and lacked the greed for money and fame that marked many of his contemporaries; he was of kindly disposition and exerted himself to win the confidence of pilfering Greenland Eskimos. Unlike Frobisher, he was a scientific seaman and, along with Jacques Cartier, may be said to have rough-charted the eastern Canadian seaboard from the Gulf of the St. Lawrence to Cumberland Gulf on Baffin Island. He "fixed" the entrance to Hudson Strait, discovered Cumberland Gulf - later the resort of whalers - and sailed far up Baffin Bay.
This book details his life and his voyages of exploration, as well as his many inventions and knowledge in the area of navigating the seas.
