Weird and Tragic Shores: The Story of Charles Francis Hall, Explorer
by Chauncey Loomis Andrea Barrett (Introduction)
- 350 PAGES
A neglected 1971 classic, resurrected by series editor John Krakauer and the Modern Library. Amateur explorer Charles Francis Hall, like many contemporaries in the 1860s, ventured into the Arctic in search of the lost Franklin Expedition. Loomis sets out to find Hall's grave and solve the mystery of his death. Most interesting.
