Arctic Searching Expedition-A Journal of a Boat-Voyage, Vol. 1
Arctic Searching Expedition-A Journal of a Boat-Voyage, Vol. 2 (1851)
by Sir John Richardson (1787-1865)
DPC recently completed, and have posted, their 2,000th and 2,001st projects.
This two volume set is a report of a voyage through Rupert's Land (central to northern interior of Canada) and the Arctic Sea, in search of the lost ships under the command of Sir John Franklin. This was the first voyage in search of Franklin and his ships.
These volumes include discussions of the journey and searching undertaken, along with the geography, people, plants, etc. found on the voyage. An extensive Appendix includes details on the geography, geology, climatology, distribution of plants and insect species, and vocabulary lists for a number of the aboriginal groups they met. There are also coloured illustrations and drawings of natives and locations visited.
In September 2014, a Parks Canada expedition discovered the remains of one of Franklin's ships. It was eventually determined that the ship found was the HMS Erebus. For those interested, here is the link to the Parks Canada website for The Franklin Expedition.
