Franklin's Lost Ships( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1845 Sir John Franklin set off to find the Northwest Passage through the Canadian Arctic. Franklin, his two ships and 129 men were never heard from again. And the fate of the expedition has become one of the greatest mysteries in the history of exploration. But does the discovery last summer of Franklin’s flagship Erebus mean the mystery has been solved? The location of the ship validates the Inuit oral history about the British crew — how after all of them abandoned the ships a few straggling survivors came back and rode her south with the moving ice. Once the Erebus was frozen in near the Adelaide Peninsula, it looks like the men lived on board for at least one more winter before trying to escape the Arctic again on foot. Franklin's Lost Ships uses CGI, re-enactments and a good old-fashioned adventure yarn to lay out how Franklin’s expedition became the worst disaster in polar exploration history. It took scientific discipline, Inuit oral history and some luck to finally find the Erebus. But the story is far from over
