    When Franklin's party was in the Arctic, they were not alone. He's someone who saw in the Franklin material the stuff of a good conspiracy book. One might hope, for example, that some editor at the press knew that the pre-eminent Franklin historian was David and not 'Donald' C. But the memory of time is fickle and there is no one so important, so worthy, that he or she cannot pass away with the years, dimming in popular memory and finally taking refuge in the pages of history books and classroom texts. But historians looking to reconstruct the fate of the Franklin expedition have one ace in their hand that investigators of other mysteries do not: eyewitnesses. King Jr.

    A3 July 26, Headline: Secret Service furloughs third White House guard The story was also covered in the New York Times and other major east coast newspapers, but because of the links to Whitehouse and control from the top the story was killed. They were hardly 'explored' since they weren't even discovered until sixty years later. That is not to say he is without scientific background. Having said this, The Franklin Conspiracy is fun to read and well written.

    Others of his calling had honoured him by bestowing his name on innumerable land features as they pushed further and further into the chill, forbidding Arctic reaches. Whatever followed has been a mystery ever since, clarified by only the scarecest specks of occasional evidence, and clouded by scuttlebutt and speculation and tall tales and the darkest rumor of all: cannibalism. As a teenager, he first drank moonshine, and he knows his relatives in Franklin County drank moonshine at family events. Igniting a storm of controversy during its initial release, it is an experience you will never forget, with a final line which will linger in the mind for years to come.

For this reason, most Americans have never heard of it. While it's interesting to take a step back in time to the early 90s, it's also somewhat disconcerting -- there are a lot of ideas and attitudes that would have been perfectly normal then that really stand out as being completely unacceptable now.

The resulting jail sentences were relatively light two years or lessand 13 conspirators only received probation. This brings a new reading to the issue of that always irksome date. The hard data — a few graves, some bones, a cryptic weathered note left behind by the expedition at Victory Point, and some poorly recorded Inuit stories — are so sparse that the temptation to resort to the extraordinary to explain what happened is immense.

Of course it raises as many questions as it answers - for example the drift from Beechey Island would push them out towards Baffin Bay not down Peel Strait to King William's Island.

Rae, who lived among the Inuit, had learned to place a great deal of trust in their oral histories. It seemed nothing could go wrong.

The Franklin Cover

On board were sailors and scientists, led by the legendary explorer, Sir John Franklin. What can we know about the real fate of Franklin's lost expedition? He asks the obvious but never asked question. But sometimes, in this freedom from restrictions, unlikely insights emerge. The Franklin Conspiracy can be purchased online at Amazon.

No evidence ever suggested the men were affected by late-stage symptoms like dementia, for example. The prosecution summoned witnesses, most of which if not all were convicted criminals, versus the defense's 69, taking roughly 10 weeks for the entirety of the testimonies to be heard.

If their black hulls and iron shod prows were not reason enough to give Captain Dannett pause, the names painted on their sterns must surely have. No letters of Parry's, no hidden manuscript found in some relatives' trunk -- purely because it suits his thesis that Parry discovered the 'mysterious phenomenon' on King William's Island.

The illegal liquor-making in the county is a topic not often broached in public. It is a meticulously researched historical treatise which reads like a bestselling horror novel. Leaning upright against the side of the boat were two shot-guns, one barrel in each carefully loaded and cocked, in Owen Beattie's words, "as if ready to fend off an attack that never came.

In the book's final chapters before the epilogue one would expect to find the final answer Latta promised in the introduction when he wrote "in this case the final answer is a final story that explains all the facts, answers all the questions, and incorporates all the details into a satisfying whole.
