North with Franklin: The Lost Journals of James Fitzjames by ericblair

no cover found

Adventure fans and Franklin expedition junkies will appreciate this fictionalized account of the famous doomed trip. In 1845, Sir John Franklin and crew left England in search of a northwest passage through the Canadian Arctic. The expedition was the greatest and most thoroughly prepared ever, and the possibility of complete disaster seemed unimaginable to both participants and the fascinated public. By 1847, however, no word was heard from the group, so the English government began sending relief expeditions. Finally, in 1859, the crew's human remains, clothes, supplies, and equipment were located in the Arctic tundra, along with evidence of cannibalism and of a crew driven insane by the lead used to seal their canned goods. Based on a series of letters written by expedition officer James Fitzjames to the wife of a friend, and containing segments of his original journal (he mailed the journal from Greenland prior to the disastrous voyage), this novel re-creates the fascinating story of the expedition's demise. A suspenseful and enjoyable read.

"...both entertaining and thought-provoking for readers of historical fiction and/or Canadiana." -- Canadian Book Review Annual

"...one reads on, fascinated, to the bitter end." -- The Globe and Mail

"A suspenseful and enjoyable read." -- Booklist
