A thirdmasterful biography from historian Ken McGoogan, Lady Franklin’s Revenge isthe richly documented story of a complex, ambitious Victorian—arguably thegreatest woman traveller of the 19th century— and the transformation of a failedexpedition into a triumphant legend. A Globe and Mail Book of the Year, andshortlisted for the Ontario Libraries Evergreen Award, Lady Franklin’s Revenge isan exquisitely illustrated epic adventure.
