The search was on. John Franklin's expedition had disappeared while searching for the Northwest Passage. Such was the risk when trying to discover the fabled waterway that eluded so many before. Search parties were sent to find Franklin, but they too looked for ways to complete the passage. In The Perilous Search for the Fabled Northwest Passage in American History, author Karen Clemens Warrick leads readers through ice-cold temperatures and chilly waters while they learn about explorers' efforts to find the passage. Only the explorers who adapted the ways of the Inuit people would have success and escape death. From John Cabot to Henry Hudson to Roald Amundsen, Warrick examines all efforts by these brave men.
