Edited afterMoreThe American explorer Charles Francis Hall (1821 71) made two voyages to the Arctic to determine the fate of Sir John Franklins lost expedition.

While there, he lived with Inuit, learning their language and adopting their way of life. Edited after his death and published in 1879, this account of his second expedition, from 1864 to 1869, brings the conditions he endured vividly to life. Two punishing sledge journeys to King William Island revealed evidence of Franklins encampment there, but also the stark fact that rumours of survivors were unfounded.

The work, which contains a number of fine engravings and maps, also includes appendices presenting Halls detailed scientific observations and notes of his conversations with the Inuit, which disclosed evidence of cannibalism among Franklins crew. Based on his earlier expedition, Halls Life with the Esquimaux (1864) is also reissued in this series.
