Summary
  • Former naval captain turned polar explorer, Sir John Franklin, disappeared into the ice with his ships and 120 sailors during his polar expedition in 1845. The expedition had set out from England hoping to find a shortcut from Canada to the Pacific, a shortcut which later became known as the Northwest Passage. Over the next 14 years over 50 search parties scoured the Arctic in search of Franklin and his men. On King William Sound in the Arctic archipelago they found clues; a couple of bodies, mounds of abandoned equipment and a creepy note. It's a story about cannibalism, and has the inkling of a naval coverup of this secret practice at sea.
