Northwest Passage

I've become fascinated by Canada's arctic recently, for some unknown reason -- and in particular the tragic tale of the Franklin expedition.  I'm reading Brian Payton's "The Ice Passage" atm, which is probably the best non-fiction book i've read this year -- it's not exactly about Franklin, but is instead about the voyage of the HMS Investigator -- which set sail four years after HMS Terror and HMS Erebus, Franklin's ships, to both search for traces of the lost ships and find the passage.
