The North-West Passage had thwarted the attempts of many expeditions by the mid nineteenth century, but none were so famous as the disappearance of Sir John Franklin and his crew. After two years with no word, a £20,000 reward was offered to anyone who could find the expedition, leading to many rescue missions. One such attempt was made by Irish explorer in the British Royal Navy Sir Francis Leopold McClintock (1819–1907), who in 1859 succeeded in discovering the only written record left by Franklin's expedition. “In the Arctic Seas” recounts McClintock incredible Arctic excision and his death-defying endeavours to uncover what really happened to Franklin and his ill-fated crew. An incredible account of survival against all odds in the unforgiving Arctic highly recommended for those with an interest in the famous Franklin expedition and Arctic exploration in general. Read & Co. History is republishing this classic memoir now in a brand new edition complete with an introductory biography by John Knox Laughton.

After numerous expeditions to find, or ascertain the fate of, Sir John Franklin and the ships and crew that comprised his ill-fated search for the North West Passage, the British Government eventually gave up. Not so his feisty wife, Lady Jane Franklin, who commissioned Captain F L M'Clintock, a veteran of previous Arctic expeditions, to revisit her husband s last known whereabouts and determine once and for all the fate that had befallen the members of his expedition. Their mission, in a small refitted yacht, encompassing the travails of the voyage; meetings with the 'Esquimaux'; and, finally, the solution to this great mystery, is described here in poignant detail. Anyone with an interest in Arctic exploration and the heroics of the men who made such trips shouldn't miss this intriguing account.
