The Four-year Odyssey of Captain John Ross and the Victory

Book - 2003
Rate this:
In May 1829, after eleven years of being denied command of a ship, Captain John Ross set sail on Victory, the first steamer to brave the Arctic waters. His goal: to prove that the Northwest Passage did indeed exist. Thus began four years spent ice-bound in the Canadian Arctic. Trapped by the shifting floes, brutal storms, and extreme temperatures, the expeditioners changed their goal to mere survival. With the help of the Inuits of Boothia Peninsula, Ross and his crew would attempt to conquer this hostile, barren environment-and make it home to tell the tale.
