It’s 1857, and teenager Peter Griffin joins a sea mission to solve a world-famous mystery: what really happened to Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin? Franklin and his crew of 128 men had sailed from England twelve years earlier in search of the Northwest Passage, a sea route through the Arctic between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Mysteriously, the entire Franklin expedition disappeared without a trace.
In his introduction, Ken McGoogan provides readers with background on the dramatic 2014 discovery of the wreck of Franklin’s HMS Erebus and connects these events to the story of the 1857 expedition.
