"Undoubtedly the most authoritative, cool-headed and thrilling investigation so far" Jonathan Keates The Observer "Woodman has examined all the documentation on Inuit testimony with relentless thoroughness. He has made a vitally important, long overdue contribution ...It is a book anyone obsessed with Franklin will want to have" Toronto Star "Compelling reading" Books in Canada "Woodman is an indefatigable and creative researcher, and gifted in the ability to convey dauntless enthusiasm for the obscure hieroglyphs that Franklin's history left us in its wake." Arctic Circle "Woodman's book will be invaluable to those who can't get enough on the Franklin mystery." Montreal Gazette "Brilliant ... a joy to read ...it unfolds slowly like a good detective story. Some chapters are masterpieces, containing all sorts of interesting titbits and background material ...The time is ripe for a fresh, new, original book about John Franklin. This is it." C. Stuart Houston, University of Saskatchewan and editor of The Arctic Ordeal and To the Arctic by Canoe "[Woodman] has done an excellent job of gathering Inuit testimony and he presents a new emphasis which allows new interpretations and conclusions with regard to the Franklin epic. Such an approach should fit in with the new genre of book which seeks to look back into history and present a native perspective." Dorothy Harley Eber, author of When the Whalers were up North
