Dead Reckoning: The Untold Story of the Northwest Passage

by McGoogan, Ken

CAD $33.99 CAD $11.99

This vivid, comprehensive recasting of Arctic-exploration history challenges the narrative that emerged out of Victorian England, which focused almost exclusively on Royal Navy officers. McGoogan integrates the stories of non-British and fur-trading explorers and, above all, Canada’s Indigenous peoples, bringing the story into the twenty-first century. An example: without the assistance of the Inuit, the final resting place of Franklin’s lost ships, Erebus and Terror, would still be disputed.
