Summary
The true story of the greatest mystery of Arctic exploration and how a combination of marine science and Inuit knowledge led to the shipwreck's recent discovery. The book weaves together the epic story of the Franklin Expedition--whose two ships and crew of 129 were lost to the Arctic ice--with the modern tale of the scientists, divers, and local Inuit behind the incredible discovery of the flagship's wreck in 2014. Paul Watson, who was on the icebreaker that led the discovery expedition, tells a fast-paced historical adventure: Sir John Franklin and the crew of the HMS Erebus and Terror setting off in search of the fabled Northwest Passage, the hazards they encountered and the reasons they were forced to abandon ship hundreds of miles from the nearest outpost of Western civilization, and the decades of searching that turned up only rumours of cannibalism and a few scattered clues--until a combination of Inuit lore and the latest science yielded a discovery for the ages
