Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Even the reader with a casual interest in Arctic lore and history has heard of the lost expedition of Sir John Franklin, fewer have heard the mystery of James Knight. Nearly three centuries ago, Knight set out to find riches in the frozen north at Marble Island. He made it there with his crew as artifacts attest, but no one really knows what happened to him there. Were Knight and his men murdered by the local people or left to die hardheartlessly by Samuel Hearne, his enemy? The book provides the account of explorers/scientists John Geiger and Owen Beattie's attempt to solve this long standing mystery. A facinating account for those interested in Arctic exploration and the explorers who dared lead the way north.
