|Plot Summary of Captain Francis Crozier: Last Man Standing?|
|"With six trips to explore the Artic and Antarctic under his belt, traveling with the likes of Parry, Ross and Franklin, it is surprising that the name Francis Crozier is a name lost in obscurity. When Sir John Barrow of the British Admiralty planned the last expedition to the artic to search for the Northwest Passage connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in 1845, Crozier, the man with the most knowledge of the ships and of the artic, was passed over for leadership...all because he was Irish and of modest means. Crozier's adventures on the ice, and his lovelorn relationship with Sir John Franklin's niece, are detailed in this adventure filled book. Crozier was so well known and respected in the artic exploration circles of the day that his name was given to a number of landmarks in both of the artic regions. Eventually, a lunar landscape on the moon was named for Crozier among other polar ice explorers."
