In 1845 Sir John Franklin led 129 officers and men into the Arctic to try to find the North-West Passage.
None of them returned.
Trapped is a novel that tells the harrowing, grueling, fascinating story of the disastrous, ill-fated expedition of Sir John Franklin of 1845 which resulted in the deaths of the entire crew of one hundred and twenty-nine officers and men and the loss of the two expedition ships.
These men were the pride of the British Navy and had volunteered heroically for the expedition into the frozen unknown to try to find the North-West Passage. The truth about their fate is still largely unknown.
This extraordinary novel, written by an author who has spent seven years researching one of the most courageous expeditions in maritime history, brings alive the courage, the comradeship, camaraderie and bravery that prevailed among the expedition's members even when they faced the gravest of crises.
