Ice Ghosts weaves together the epic story of the lost Franklin Expedition of 1845--whose two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, and their crew of 129 were lost to the Arctic ice--with the modern tale of the scientists, divers, and local Inuit behind the recent incredible discoveries of the wrecks. Paul Watson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who was on the icebreaker that led one of the discovery expeditions, tells a fast-paced historical adventure story and reveals how a combination of faith in Inuit knowledge and the latest science yielded a discovery for the ages.
