Pack your bags-we're going on an incredible trip! Travel with the Great Explorers takes you on some of the most remarkable journeys of exploration. Discover where the explorers went, why they went there, how they got there, and what went right and wrong along the way. British explorer John Franklin set off to find the Northwest Passage, a sea route to Asia, through the Arctic waters north of Canada. Franklin knew the dangers. On a previous Arctic expedition, his men were so hungry they had to eat their own boots! This time Franklin set off with modern ships and plenty of supplies - and was never heard from again. The search to find Franklin inspired many explores to head to the Arctic. Over the centuries clues were found that told the remarkable story of what became of Franklin's lost expedition. Book jacket.
