    1. a little early to tell the tale of both ships but i wait for vol 2 when they discuss the finding of the Terror right where the Init s said it would be.

    2. This was a fascinating account of the search for and discovery of a ship that has been historically much sought Franklin s flagship HMS Erebus I loved reading about how the search team relied on Inuit oral histories to eventually locate the wreck, and I can t wait to learn what they find out about the ship and expedition in the coming field seasons I would have given this 5 stars, but the casual Steven Harper worship was a bit much for me.

    3. I quite liked this well documented story Actually there were two stories equally good the story of Erebus and the fate of the Franklin ship, and the story of the search not quite 200 years later Most appealing to me was the huge importance of the contributions of the Inuit oral stories passed along through generations.
