Summary
'Ice Ghosts' weaves together the epic story of the lost Franklin Expedition of 1845 whose two ships and crew of 129 were lost to the Arctic ice with the tale of the incredible discovery of the flagship's wreck in 2014. Paul Watson, who was on the icebreaker that led the discovery expedition, tells a fast-paced historical adventure story: Sir John Franklin and the crew of the HMS Erebus and Terror setting off in search of the fabled Northwest Passage, the hazards they encountered and the reasons they were forced to abandon ship hundreds of miles from the nearest outpost of civilisation, and the decades of searching that exposed rumours of cannibalism and a few scattered papers and bones until a combination of Inuit lore and the latest science yielded a discovery for the ages
