Overall a worthwhile review of the history of 19th Century artic explorations, and the likely fate of the Franklin expedition. My minor gripes concern the 3rd person perspective of one of the authors (Beattie) and the somewhat ostentatious and annoyingly self-congratulatory description of the work by Cited by:   The disappearance in of Sir John Franklin and his crew in the Canadian Arctic set off the greatest rescue operation in the history of than 30 expeditions over two decades would search by land and sea for clues as to his fate, in the process charting vast areas of the Canadian Arctic and mapping the complete route of the Northwest Passage.

After years there are claims that one of Sir John Franklin's ships has been found by a Canadian team that has been searching since The original, intensive search for Franklin's lost expedition involved huge resources and numerous voyages to the Arctic.

It caught the imagination of the Victorian public in a way comparable. John Cabot urged his ships into the unknown in and to find it, but failed. Martin Frobisher, Henry Hudson, and James Cook searched icy northern waters for it, in vain.

Sir John Franklin, (born ApSpilsby, Lincolnshire, England—died Jnear King William Island, British Arctic Islands [now in Nunavut territory, Canada]), English rear admiral and explorer who led an ill-fated expedition () in search of the Northwest Passage, a Canadian Arctic waterway connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

This book is a tour-de-force of scholarship and should be required reading - in fact the first port of call - for anyone interested in the Franklin Expedition. Although a Doctor by profession, the author devoted his life to analysing and understanding all aspects of the Franklin Expedition/5.

Sir John was a naval officer whose experience of polar service had begun in with a failed voyage into the Spitzbergen ice to reach the North Pole.

In and again in he made overland expeditions from Hudson Bay to the Polar Sea to map North America's unexplored arctic by: 8. Led by Sir John Franklin, two Royal Navy ships set out in with men, and just disappeared. Last September, the nearly intact remains of one of Franklin’s ships, HMS Erebus, were.

Then inDr. John Rae endeavored on a fruitful search for Franklin’s lost expedition. Rae was a surgeon from the Orkney Islands of Scotland. He worked for the Hudson’s Bay Company in Ontario treating both indigenous and European employees.

A ship from Sir. John Franklin's ill-fated attempt to discover the northwest passage has been found by the Victoria Straight Expedition. The long-lost ship of British polar explorer Sir John Franklin, HMS Terror, has been found in pristine condition at the bottom of an Arctic bay, researchers have said, in a discovery that.

Sadly overlooked and neglected by the UK government because he told the truth about the Franklin expedition's cannibalism, this book goes a long way to righting the situation with respect to revealing the truth and restoring John Rae's (who should at least have been Sir John Rae) s:   As early asjust six years after the expedition was declared lost, a Hudson’s Bay fur trader named John Rae talked to Inuk men he met about the fate of the Expedition.

When, however, in fears for Franklin’s safety forced the Admiralty to investigate, Richardson volunteered to look for his old colleague, and was named to command a search party with Dr John Rae*, a chief factor of the Hudson’s Bay Company, and also skilled in Arctic travel. Their expedition started from Liverpool in March and.

In searches began in earnest when a reward of 10, was posted. InDr. John Rae (), an employee of the Hudson's Bay Company, accompanied Sir John Richardson of the Royal Navy in search of either news, the survivors, or the remains of the polar expedition.

I'm a polar exploration junkie, so I've read an ungodly amount of books about Sir John Franklin, James Clark Ross, Charles Francis Hall, and other famous explorers.

Somehow, I always come back to this one. Even an interesting event like the Franklin Expedition can fall victim to history writers who make their subject boring/5().
