2 I was born in London, England, in 1565 My first job was as a cabins boy on a large boat. The boat below is an example of one of my ships.

3 After a few more years I became an apprentice. Then in a couple of months I was a very skilled sailor.

4  On my first voyage, the Muscovy Company ( English firm ) entrusted me to find the “thought to be real” Northwest Passage. I was blocked by ice shields and had to return empty handed.

5 My second voyage was also stopped by ice shields.

6 MMy third voyage was under the rule of the Dutch and I thought that there were two possible Northwest passages but they failed and I was sent back to Holland.

7  My fourth voyage was under British rule in April 17, After about one month of sailing around, I found a river and a bay that would be later named after me.

8 The river that was named after me became one of the most popular rivers in the United States.

9 I sadly died in 1611 at age 45.
