Literary Thoughts edition presents Arctic Searching Expedition by Sir John Richardson ------ Now for the first time available as one single ebook, the "Arctic Searching Expedition" was originally published in 1851 by surgeon, naturalist and Arctic explorer Sir John Richardson (1787–1865) and is a journal of a boat-voyage through Rupert's Land and the Arctic Sea, in search of the discovery ships under command of Sir John Franklin. The story charts the journey which would inevitably fail in its ambition: Franklin, unknown to Richardson, had already died in June 1847. Volume 1 depicts the journey to Fort Confidence in the Canadian Arctic, ending with detailed descriptions of the aboriginal Inuit and Gwich'in peoples encountered, whereas volume 2 begins with detailed descriptions of the Chipewyan and Cree peoples. All books of the Literary Thoughts edition have been transscribed from original prints and edited for better reading experience. Please visit our homepage to see our other publications.
