Synopsis: There is no saga in Canadian history as full of hardship, catastrophe and mystery as the search for the Northwest Passage. Since the 15th century, the ice-choked Arctic waterway has been sought and traveled by daring men seeking profit, glory or a chance to test themselves against the merciless North. Frances Hern takes us aboard ships with the explorers whose names are memorialized on modern maps of northern Canada: Martin Frobisher, daring privateer in the service of Elizabeth I; Henry Hudson, a navigator who may have driven his crew to mutiny; John Franklin, whose last voyage became an enduring northern mystery; the talented Orkneyman John Rae, a surgeon and surveyor on the trail of Franklin.Also vividly recounted are the grueling overland treks of Samuel Hearne; the heroic exploits of Roald Amundsen, leader of the first expedition to traverse the passage; and the incredible voyages of Henry Larsen, captain of the RCMP vessel St. Roch.

About the Author:

Frances Hern grew up in Birmingham, England near Tolkien territory. An avid reader and writer, she now lives in Golden, BC, where she writes poetry, non-fiction and children's fiction. Although she didn't enjoy high school history she has come to realize how strongly the past influences the present and aims to write historical fiction and non-fiction that will entertain readers.
