About "The Franklin Expedition"
The disappearance of Sir John Franklin, his ships and crews is one of the greatest mysteries in the history of exploration. Canadian Geographic and The Royal Canadian Geographical Society are at the forefront of what’s been discovered so far.
Erika Behrisch Elce’s new book develops the character of the famously private Lady Franklin through imagined letters to her explorer husband, written around the time of his untimely Arctic death.
