Frozen in Time tells the dramatic story of how Sir John Franklin’s elite naval forces came within sight of the Northwest Passage, only to succumb to unimaginable horrors. A gripping tale of cannibalism, bureaucratic hubris, great courage and ground-breaking science, it shows how the excavation of three sailors from the 184548 Franklin expedition, buried for 138 years on the Arctic headland of Beechey Island, has shed new light on what has been one of the world’s great maritime mysteries.

I had not heard about John Franklin's journey in search for the Northwest passage until I found out this impressive Dr. Beattie's work. It has been difficult to get away of this book everyday when I realized that there were pages left to go through, new discoveries, new conclusions... What this book has done to me is to get involved into this authentic but amazing tale of pain, strenght, hope and dead...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
