Book Description

5 Mar 1992 Time Quest
The fifth book in the "Time Quest" series. Each "Time Quest" book focuses on a recent historical discovery. In words and pictures, the explorer, scientist or archaeologist responsible for the discovery describes their achievement and takes the reader back to relive the story behind it. This is the story of how a 140-year-old mystery - that of the fate of the men on Sir John Franklin's expedition to find the Northwest passage in 1845 - was solved. Anthropologist Dr Owen Beattie recounts first-hand how he pieced together the evidence of what led to the men's deaths so many years ago, and of the discovery of the bodies of three sailors from Franklin's expedition - so well preserved by the ice in which they were buried that they looked as though they were still alive.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cold friendship 30 Mar 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:School & Library Binding
I very much recommend this book, it was a great story that kept me thriving for more. I could not put this book down whenever I picked it up. When I read the book I could easily concentrate, I almost got sucked into the story and became one of the characters in it. I learned that scurvy is a sickness that can kill, I learned this from when John died. I loved the book because it is non fiction and I actually know that it

happened. John and Lukes friendship held my interest because when John got sick Luke visited him almost every day. Alot of people would enjoy it. Anyone interested in survival, large ships, Arctic weather, a great friendship, and a mystery of a missing ship. I would read one billion other books by these two authors I love the story. I encourage anyone that can get this book to read it. BURIED IN ICE IS A GREAT STORY BY A GREAT AUTHOR...

3.0 out of 5 stars a picture is worth a thousand nightmares 17 Dec 2001
By Slashqueen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
My mother gave this book to me when I was ten, which was a very long time ago. Those images of the mummies, so well-preserved that they don't look like mummies but like still-living human beings in some eternal pain we can't imagine -- they gave me nightmares then and they can still chill me to the stomach.
2.0 out of 5 stars Good - but a bit contrived 13 Dec 1999
By William Kraus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
While the first part of the book discussing the history of the Franklin Expedition was both interesting and informative, the remainder of the book seemed padded and contrived, as it dwelled too much on the modern day trials and tribulations of Beattie and his collaborators. The authors seemed to be trying too hard to build up to a climatic conclusion, and I felt that the book could have been much better written.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent... a must read! 18 Sep 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
This is a book that will give you a new perpective on the value of life, and real-life adventure on the high seas. Read about the tragedy of a lost arctic expedition, and the plight of the sailors who went with it. Gruesome but elaborate photos of the bodies of three sailors lost aboard the expedition can give the reader a feeling of how tragic their deaths were. Anthropologist Owen Beattie unravels the age old mystery of how the Franklin expedition was lost. It's a great book and I highly recommend it
