In february 1845, the british admiralty appointed sir John Franklin leader of a mission to discover and navigate the fi nal unknown parts of the long-sought Northwest Passage. For many years, explorers had searched for a waterway through North America leading to the Pacifi c Ocean and the riches of China and the Orient. Franklin was 59 years old, an advanced age for such a job. It would not be easy, but Franklin was eager to go. Solving the puzzle of the Northwest Passage would be the highlight of his career. Franklin had certainly shown, by his three earlier Arctic expeditions and his years of public service, that he was a man of great strength. In 1819–1822, after a number of false starts, Franklin made his way from Fort Enterprise on Canada’s Great Slave Lake to the Coppermine River. From there he canoed to the mouth of that river, on the Coronation Gulf. Traveling east along Canada’s northernmost shore, he carefully explored and mapped 300 miles (482 kilometers) of coastline. He named the farthest point he reached Point Turnagain.
