Ice Ghosts, The Epic Hunt for the Lost Franklin Expedition

Paul Watson
W. W. Norton & Company

In this dramatic history, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Paul Watson sheds light on Arctic exploration's greatest mystery. Searching for the fabled Northwest Passage in 1845, the two ships and 129 men of the Franklin Expedition were never heard from again. Their fate was only local rumor until 2014 when, as Watson himself stood the bow of an icebreaker, Franklin's flagship was spotted.
