Dead Reckoning: The Untold Story of the Northwest Passage

by McGoogan, Ken

CAD $33.99 CAD $11.99

Ken McGoogan delivers a vivid, comprehensive recasting of Arctic-exploration history. His story challenges the conventional narrative, which emerged out of Victorian England and focused almost exclusively on Royal Navy officers. By integrating non-British and fur-trade explorers and, above all, Canada’s indigenous peoples, into the history of Arctic discovery, this work brings the story into the twenty-first century. Without the assistance of the Inuit, Franklin’s recently discovered ships, "Erebus" and "Terror", would still be lying undiscovered at the bottom of the polar sea.
