About this title


Ken McGoogan chronicles Hearne's harrowing odyssey, which was marked by hardship, hunger and disappointment, and mitigated only by his friendship with the legendary Indian leader Matonabbee. Hearne's epic adventure culminated in the infamous massacre by the Coppermine River an event that became the cornerstone of his own book, Journey to the Northern Ocean, and changed his life forever. It was Hearne's own account of this atrocity that McGoogan believes inspired Samuel Coleridge's famous poem the "Time Of The Ancient Mariner". Haunted by guilt and sorrow, the explorer shared his story with the poet when they met in London.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
