But the only white men who had succeeded in getting far out into the Barren Ground were the early explorers, - Hearne, Sir John Franklin, Sir George Back, and Dr. Richardson, while long afterwards Dr. Rae and Stewart and Anderson went in search of the missing Franklin expedi tion. With the exception of Hearne, who threw in his lot with the Indians, these leaders were all accompanied by the most capable men that could be procured, and no expense was spared in order to make success as certain as possible; yet in spite of every precaution the story of Sir John Frank lin's first overland journey and the death of Hood are among the saddest episodes in the history of the Arctic exploration.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
