The international bestseller revealing the fate of the doomed Franklin Expedition-now with a new afterword on the discovery of Erebus and Terror, and a new section of color photos.

In 1845, Sir John Franklin and his men set out to "penetrate the icy vastness of the north, and to circumnavigate America." And then they disappeared. The truth about what happened to Franklin's ill-fated Arctic expedition was shrouded in mystery for more than a century. Then, in 1984, Owen Beattie and his team exhumed two crew members from a burial site in the North for forensic evidence, to shocking results. But the most startling, when a team commissioned by the Canadian government uncovered the lost ships: Erebus and Terror.
