Fatal Passage: The Untold Story of John Rae
by McGoogan, Ken
An absorbing account of an astonishing story, hidden from the world for almost 150 years. John Rae was sent by the British Admiralty to find out what became of Franklin and his two ships. He returned having discovered the truth about the expedition, including evidence of cannibalism, and the final link in the Northwest Passage. He was ostracized for these discoveries; only now does his story come to light.
