"

""Simply Compelling"" -- Mordecai Richler

Available for the first time as an e-book, Frozen in Time tells the dramatic story of how Sir John Franklin's elite naval forces came within sight of the Northwest Pasage, only to succumb to unimaginable horrors. A gripping tale of cannibalism, bureaucratic hubris, great courage and ground-breaking science, it shows how the excavation of three sailors from the 1845-48 Franklin expedition, buried for 138 years on the lonely Arctic headland of Beechey Island, has shed new light on what has been on of the world's great maritime mysteries. With researchers and maritime archaeologists hard at work in the coming months to discover the whereabouts of Franklin's two vessels, the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, Frozen in Time is a necessary primer of the research that has gone before.
