Breuckelen 1679: Voyage to New Netherland

7.00

A graphic novel inspired by an illustrated 17th century travel dairy written by the Dutch explorer Jasper Danckaerts, Breuckelen: 1679, reinterprets the journal using contemporary , highly accessible story telling, and suggests a way of viewing history as fluid, personal, and continually relevant.

The adaptation focuses on Danckaert’s interactions with the indigenous Najack people who introduce the explorer to new foods and animals, and who also make clear to him that their homeland was changing through European influence and migration.
