-- Presents a new edition of Franklin's classic first-person account of his tragic 1819-22 Arctic expedition, illustrated with more than thirty photographs and drawingsJohn Franklin's three-year sojourn in the wilderness succeeded in mapping part of the Arctic coast but ended in disaster. As supplies ran out, starvation and scurvy set in. More than half of the team members died as they huddled in winter quarters with lichens scraped off rocks, bones, scraps of hide, and their own boots as their only food. One voyager went insane and was executed on suspicion of murder and cannibalism. Sumptuously illustrated and poignantly written, Journey to the Polar Sea is a classic tale of exploration and high drama.
