Noted for proving the existence of the Northwest Passage, John Franklin is a celebrated explorer in Canadian history. A British Royal Navy officer and Arctic explorer, Franklin first sailed around Canada from 1819 to 1822, and then again from 1825 to 1827 when he explored the mouth of the Mackenzie River. After being knighted and serving as governor of Tasmania from 1836 to 1843, Franklin took to the seas again to finally navigate his Northwest Passage. Perhaps from starvation and exposure to the harsh Arctic climate, Franklin and his crew never successfully made it back home, but their efforts, maps, journals and bravery leave them memorialized in museums and monuments throughout Canada today

On heroes, hero-worship, & the heroic in history by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

16 editions published between 1841 and 2010 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on a series of lectures delivered in 1840, Thomas Carlyle's On Heroes, Hero-Worship, and the Heroic in History considers the creation of heroes and the ways they exert heroic leadership. From the divine and prophetic (Odin and Muhammad) to the poetic (Dante and Shakespeare) to the religious (Luther and Knox) to the political (Cromwell and Napoleon), Carlyle investigates the mysterious qualities that elevate humans to cultural significance. By situating the text in the context of six essays by distinguished scholars that reevaluate both Carlyle's work and his ideas, David Sorensen and Brent Kinser argue that Carlyle's concept of heroism stresses the hero's spiritual dimension. In Carlyle's engagement with various heroic personalities, he dislodges religiosity from religion, myth from history, and truth from "quackery" as he describes the wondrous ways in which these "flowing light-fountains" unlock the heroic potential of ordinary human beings."--
