Arctic Labyrinth Read & Download ✓ 104 As a result of global warming and the subseuent shrinking of Arctic ice for the first time in seafaring history a navigable Northwest Passage linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans will open up The possibility of seasonal shipping lanes has renewed the world's interest and there are lessons to be learned for the next explorers st. Call me crazy for being fascinated with the search for the Northwest Passage but at least I m not as crazy as the guys who actually went on the search for the Northwest Passage And what a crew they were Fearless daring stalwart these were men who sailed into unknown waters on masted sailing ships smaller than a modern day semi with nothing than a spyglass in hand They were also looney enough to undertake return voyages after they had already spent months frozen in ice suffering from scurvy frostbite and other debilitating conditions enduring frightful boredom from endless days and nights in a solid white landscape and almost always half starved and three uarters dead by the time they made it home But as any maritime historian will tell you the centuries long uest to find that treasured seagoing route to Asia via the ice choked waters north of Canada is a testament to the endurance of the human spiritI still call it looneyBut fascinating it is nonetheless And Glyn Williams handles it deftly covering every major explorer involved in this long futile uest from Martin Frobisher 1500s to James Cook 1770s to Edward Parry 1810s 1820s and the doomed John Franklin 1830s 1840s and into the modern day Williams also chronicles every major milestone including the first tentative reaches into the vast network of straits sounds inlets and bays that comprise the island ridden waters in the Arctic the discoveries of new lands and new peoples the loss of ships to the floating packs of ice and every tragedy and disaster that befell those explorers who lost the fight with the elements in the unforgiving landscape For us maritime nerds who read about the Northwest Passage with a little freuency than really is sane the most famous of the Arctic disasters was the last expedition led by Sir John Franklin which departed England for the Arctic in 1845 He sailed on two ships the HMS Erebus and the HMS Terror with a complement of 128 men and they were never seen again Several search and rescue expeditions were launched in succeeding years most of them fiercely supported by Franklin s wife Lady Jane but only relics were found First there were three graves discovered on Beechey Island later identified as belonging to Franklin crew members Early expeditions also found evidence of the crews camping on Beechey Island during the winter of 1845 1846 And in subseuent decades the searches continued and relics were discovered including skeletons tools and artifacts from the two ships and cairns or canisters holding documents and notes that ideally detail an expedition s progress and next steps which have led historians to believe the crew had abandoned their ships after they became frozen in pack ice and headed south on foot to find rescue As they marched scurvy lead poisoning possibly from tainted canned food and starvation did the crew members in one by oneWilliams devotes an entire section of this detailed work to Franklin s expedition and the subseuent search and rescue missions But he doesn t scrimp on the details anywhere else as a result It is all here and written with a simple straightforward prose which I definitely appreciate There is a lot going on and I can see why those who are not familiar with Arctic exploration might become bogged down I have read other books on this topic and I can t keep all the names dates routes and ships straight I was constantly flipping to the few maps included to keep track of the progress of each expedition and I had to do the whole pause and check Wikipedia thing to keep the names and dates straight remember most of these guys who made it out alive the first time around did go back but I don t think that comes from Williams that is the nature of reading about Arctic exploration There were a lot of men involved a lot of ships a lot of expeditions a lot of dates and a lot of routesAnd I think considering the volume of data Williams handled it well I would have liked a few maps and maybe a few contextual reminders James Clark Ross whom we had last seen doing this that and the other thing but I know I will definitely call on Arctic Labyrinth for reference when I continue my readings on the search for the Northwest Passage in the futureYep I m looney too
