Arctic Explorers - In Search of the NW Passage. The search for the Northwest Passage is a saga of hardship, tragedy and mystery. For over 400 years, the elusive, ice-choked Arctic waterway has been sought and traveled by daring men seeking profit and glory but often finding only a desperate fight for survival. Spanning the centuries from Elizabethan privateer Martin Frobisher to RCMP officer Henry Larsen, the intrepid captain of the St.Roch, these stories of high adventure reveal why the Northwest Passage has gripped the imaginations of generations of explorers and lured them to its treacherous waters. With the recent discoveries of Sir Franklin's HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, Canadian's now have concrete proof of their claim to these icy waters and the tundra around it.
