Setting out from England in 1845 to find the Northwest Passage, John Franklin's ships Erebus and Terror became stuck in the ice in the Canadian Arctic; none of the crew survived, and their full, harrowing story would not be known for more than 150 years. In addition to recounting the tale of the expedition, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Paul Watson also introduces Lady Jane Franklin, who almost single-handedly kept the search alive for the rest of her life; an Inuit historian who worked for decades gathering elders' accounts; an American software billionaire who launched his own hunt; and the scientists, researchers, divers, and natives behind the recent discoveries of the two ships.
