Martin W. Sandler, Pulitzer Prize nominee, and Emmy Award winner, tackles the story of the “Resolute”, the finest vessel in Queen Victoria’s Navy. This amazing high-seas adventure encompasses the search for the Northwest Passage in the early 1800s; a renowned explorer and his crew of 128 men who vanish during an 1845 expedition; 39 incredible heroic attempted rescue missions; a ghost ship that drifts for more than 1200 miles; a queen’s gratitude and a famous desk. Fascinating rare photographs, paintings, engravings and maps illustrate the book throughout.
