Description

He has also made several much-acclaimed travel documentaries, his journeys taking him to the North and South Poles, the Sahara Desert, the Himalayas, Eastern Europe and Brazil. One thing that struck me was how many of the names given to physical features mirrored the mental states of those who named them. I don’t know if you are the same but when you meet the author and have the physical book signed it does make it very special and I seem to enjoy the book even more.

When one considers that both ships were square masted sailing ships and these voyages took place in the first half of the nineteenth century the scale of the undertakings becomes clear. Thoroughly sifts through the many varied and often contradictory theories about what happened to the 129 men aboard Franklin’s two ships. Michael’s historical non fiction debut charts both journeys and brings back to life all those who sailed on her . Questo libro è un resoconto scritto magnificamente, sul mistero che per più di 160 anni ha tenuto svegli gli storici e non, sugli ultimi giorni di queste due navi,di cui si era persa traccia.The journey he led would brave fierce storms and unimaginable cold to chart vast swathes of the most untamed continent in the world. E infatti, nel viaggio verso nord al comando di Sir John Franklin (quello che si mangiò gli scarponi), le due navi scompaiono. Brings energy, wit and humanity to a story that has never ceased to tantalise people since the 1840s.

Nel 1839, al comando di James Clark Ross, le due navi salpano poi per la gloriosa spedizione in Antartide, dove le due navi, a vela! Apart from Danger Islets, there is Cape Longing, Cape Disappointment, Delusion Point and Exasperation Bay, only slightly compensated for by Useful Island on the other side of the peninsula"; чи сценка на російському кораблі, де команда захоплюється, що в них пливе справжній кіноактор, а Пейлін соромиться розказати, що його остання роль - це Молотов у "Смерті Сталіна").A fantastic read for anyone who is interested in this field, and maybe an eye opener for those with a general interest in history who are merely tempted by the famous name of the author. The Hogarth Press where I’m working, is in the heart of the literary world, with authors coming in all the time.
