In July 1881, an expedition composed mainly of American soldiers sailed off to establish a scientific base in the remote Arctic region of Lady Franklin Bay. What happened afterward is a remarkable three-year saga of human achievement and human frailty, of heroism, hardship, bad luck and worse judgment. Compounded by deliberate political negligence back home, and fierce dissension in its own camp, the expedition's fate, and that of its would-be rescuers, eventually encompassed starvation, mutiny, suicide, shipwreck, execution, and cannibalism. The history has been only partly known, and full of riddles, but more than seven year of research by historian Leonard Guttridge has uncovered journals, letters, diaries, and other documentary material that provides intimate details of the swirling events surrounding the voyage. The result is a work of nonfiction narrative that reads like a novel.'' 8vo (about 9.5 inches tall) 354 pages. Notes, bibliography, index.
