"For a century and a half, the question of what happened to the Franklin Expedition -- the worst disaster in the history of polar exploration -- has remained a puzzle. Now, based on original research in British Admiralty records, author Scott Cookman re-creates the full story of the ill-fated expedition and reveals a frightening new explanation for one of the most enduring mysteries in the annals of exploration." -- Nathan Miller (We will be including, gratis, a nice copy of Franklin's account of his earlier (1819) polar expedition, "Journey to the Polar Sea", Konemann Travel Classics, with this order. Unfortunately, only to addresses within Australia.)
