Jane Franklin's ObsessionBook - 1992
A series of accessible, fast-paced non-fiction narratives aimed at pre-teen and young teenage readersNothing obsessed Victorian era explorers more than the idea of a seaway from the Atlandc to the Pacific -- the North West Passage. Thousands searched for it in the icy maze of Canada's Arctic islands -- their hopes and dreams so often crushed by the brutal cold of the Arctic.
