"The work chronicles the voyage of Sir Gilbert as he set out to discover the Northwest passage to Newfoundland. His first expedition met failure and the ships returned to England without success. However, undeterred he discovered the land on his second attempt and claimed it in the name of Queen Elizabeth I. This is a thrilling account of that memorable expedition. "
The course first to be taken for the discovery is to bear directly to Cape Race, the most southerly cape of Newfoundland; and there to harbour ourselves either in Rogneux or Fermous, being the first places appointed for our rendezvous, and the next harbours unto the northward of Cape Race: and therefore every ship separated from the fleet to repair to that place so fast as God shall permit.
