With Lady Franklin’s Revenge, bestselling author KenMcGoogan (Fatal Passage, Ancient Mariner) delivers another pageturning biography that brings a remarkable historical figure vividly to life.Denied a role in Victorian England’s male-dominated society, Jane Franklin(1791 1875) took her revenge by seizing control of that most masculine ofpursuits, Arctic exploration, and shaping its history to her own ends.

Arguably the greatest woman traveller of the 19th century, LadyFranklin rode a donkey into Nazareth, sailed a rat-infested boat up the Nile,climbed mountains in Africa and the Holy Land, and, wearing petticoats, beat herway through the Tasmanian bush.

When Sir John Franklin, her husband, disappeared into the Arcticin 1845, she orchestrated an unprecedented 12-year search, contributing more tothe discovery of the North than any celebrated explorer. Having failed to rescuethe hapless Franklin, she turned failure into triumph by creating a legend.

Richly detailed, panoramic in scope, this biography of theunforgettable Jane Franklin is destined to become a classic.
