More info

The Franklin Expedition, where all 129 men died,, is arguably the worst disaster to Britain's history of polar exploration. The fate of the missing men has remained an enigma that tantalised generations of historians, archaeologists and adventures.

In this book, Peter Baxter takes a new approach to the history of the Franklin Expedition, from the perspective of John Rae and Lady Franklin, and their embroiled dispute over what fate the crew met.

We learn of Lady Franklin's formidable grit to honour her husband's legacy; of John Rae being discredited and his eventual ruin, despite later being proven for all intents and purposes correct right.
