201 FRANCIS, Daniel Discovery of the North : The Exploration of Canada's Arctic. First Edition in dustjacket
Hurtig, Edmonton, 1986, ISBN:0888302800

Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Cassell 716. "This is the fascinating story of the golden age of arctic exploration, from Martin Frobisher in the sixteenth century to the controversial Vilhjalmur Stefansson in the early twentieth. It is a remarkable story of high adventure, of heroic feats of courage and endurance as well as dark episodes of murder and cannibalism. Martin Frobisher, who stood on Baffin Island and thought he was in China; Arthur Dobbs, who sought a northwest passage in the most improbable places; Samuel Hearne, who was forced to participate in an Indian-Inuit battle; John Franklin, whose doomed men took silk handkerchiefs and monogrammed silver on their death march; Thomas Simpson, who may have been driven mad by his arctic obsession; Charles Francis Hall, who was probably murdered because of his; Roald Amundsen, who went on an 800-km sled trip in an arctic winter in order to send a telegram. These are just a few of the 'discovery men' whose often incredible exploits are told in this book." - from the dust jacket. Contents: 1. The First Voyages; 2. Seeking the Hudson Bay Passage; 3.

"A Breakwater book in the Arctic and Northern Life Series."

"The whale 'fishery' flourished along Canada's three coastlines for a hundred years. It was an industry in the grand tradition of Canadian resource industries - uncontrolled, rapacious, and foreign-owned. Heedless of conservation, the arctic whalers succeeded in driving a precious natural resource to the very brink of extinction. Heedless of anthropology, they recklessly undermined the foundations of traditional Inuit culture. Heedless of national sovereignty, they inadvertently raised the delicate question of who actually owned the arctic territory. Their experience in many ways foreshadows our modern concerns about oil and gas exploration 'North of Sixty.' Their story is the subject of this book. The whale pursued in the treacherous waters of the Canadian Arctic was the bowhead. An average bowhead could be divested of as much as seven hundred pieces of baleen, the springy elastic material so much in demand for buggy whips, crinolines, and other such necessities. It would also render into several hundred barrels of whale oil to light the streets and homes of Europe. Arctic whaling, then, could, and often did, provide vast profits. It, in fact. attracted more ships, employed more men, and produced greater profits than whaling anywhere else on the continent. It also produced bankruptcies and tragedies; torturous deaths and miraculous escapes.

"Dan Francis has written a truly riveting history of the whale hunt in both the eastern and the western Arctic. Using first-hand accounts -- the logs of the ships and the diaries of the seamen -- [the author] has successed in painting a puicture of everyday life on a whaler. The seasickness, the fear, the interminable boredom as the seamen waited for a sighting, the excitement that followed the cry 'There she blows', the thrill of the chase, the tedium and sheer hardwork of flensing and rendering the whale, the low pay, the bad diet; all co me to life in these pages." - from the rear cover.

Chapters [unnumbered in the book] are :
1. The Voyage Out;
2. In Pursuit of Wealth;
3. Yankee Whalers in Hudson Bay;
4. Whaling in the "Forbidden Sea";
5. The North Transformed;
6. Conclusion.

See Arctic Bibliography 5194, Peel 2:80, Peel 3: 151, Cassell 720. In 1819 " Franklin was placed in command of a small land party, as part of the grand exploration plans of John Barrow, the vigorous secretary to the Admiralty. Franklin's instructions were to explore eastwards from the mouth of the Coppermine River, reaching it by overland travel from Hudson Bay, via Fort Chipewyan. Membership of the small party was varied, including Indian guides and Canadian canoe men drawn from the fur-tradingcompanies as well as a nucleus of Royal Nay personnel. Dr John Richardson, a scientist, accompanied the expedition to carry out observations into nat ural history. The expedition succeeded in its objectives, descending the Coppermine River and exploring the coast eastwards as far as Cape Turnagain. The account here presented reveals the extreme hardships which prevailed, particularly on the return trip overland from the Arctic coast. Starvation, death (Including murder), and even cannibalism make for a gripping narrative. The kindliness and generosity of Akaitcho and his Yellowknife Indians stand in sharp contrast to many of the Europeans involved with the expedition." from the dj. “The author traveled by Hudson Bay, Cumberland House to Fort Chipewyan, and accompanied by J. Richardson, R. Hood and J. Back, explored the upper Coppermine River, wintered at Fort Enterprise (between Great Slave and Great Bear Lakes), descended the Coppermine, and explored by canoe the coast of Coronation Gulf eastward over five hundred miles into Dease Strait to Cape Turnagain. The party returned over the Barren Grounds to Fort Enterprise. The narrative includes detailed description of travel conditions (noting hardships, lack of food, etc.), the nature of the country, riversand lakes, the various tribes of Indians, and the Copper Eskimos; with acc ounts by Richardson and Back of their separate trips with small parties forexploration, supplies, etc.” – A.B.

Illustrated. Large 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. "John Franklin is famous as the arctic explorer who disappeared in 1845 duiring his third attempt to find the Northwest Passage linking the Atlantic to the Pacific. In this journal of the first Franklin overland expedition, 1820-1822, medical officer John Richardson records the daily round of making camp, collecting specimens, and logging observations. He recounts the long trek north into unexplored territory, the men laden with heavy packs, and the descent of the turbulent Coppermine River in fragile birchbark canoes. InJuly 1821 the party reached the icy waters of the Arctic and, against the advice of Chief Akaicho, paddled east along the coast towards Repulse Bay. But it was too late in the season. Their return across the Barren Lands, starving, cold, bedevilled by loss of men and equipment, is a saga of human courage against cruel odds. Only nine of the twenty men returned -- and, forsome of them, survival involved cannibalism and possibly murder. Through a ll the tribulations, RIchardson kept his journal, an account so precise andrich in detail that, more than 160 years after the event, it is an invalua ble historical and scientific record of an exploration." - from the dustjacket.
