William Parker Snow (1817-1895) was a sailor, explorer and writer. In 1850 he wrote to Lady Franklin volunteering his services to lead a land expedition to recover her husband, Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin (1786-1847) who had not returned from his 1845 Arctic expedition. Lady Franklin declined his offer, but appointed him as second in command to Charles Forsyth on her first sponsored rescue expedition in 1850 to recover her husband. First published in 1851, this volume contains Snow's account of this rescue expedition. Taken from Snow's personal diary written during the expedition, he describes the hazardous conditions the expedition faced during the brief Arctic summer. The daily life of Snow and the crew, the methods used to ensure safe passage through ice floes and the dramatic Arctic landscapes are described in vivid detail, providing valuable information about nineteenth century Arctic expeditions

Southern Generals, Who They Are and What They Have Done was written by Charles B. Richardson in an attempt to place before the public a truthful history of the most prominent Southern Generals from the Civil War era. Although unable to cover all of the Southern officers with the rank of General, included in this book are eighteen of the most renown. Gathered from official documents, personal correspondence, private information and records of the newspaper press, Southern Generals gives substantial attention to the infamous General Robert E. Lee. Amongst the other Generals are the familiar names of Jackson, Beauregard, Johnston, Cooper, Longstreet, Bragg, Ewell, Stuart, Hill and Hood. In a smooth narrative, Richardson gives us a comprehensive look at the careers of the most prominent of those men who fought for the independence of the Southern States. Book jacket

A two years' cruise off Tierra del Fuego, the Falkland Islands, Patagonia, and in the River Plate : a narrative of life in the Southern Seas by William Parker Snow( Book )

6 editions published between 1857 and 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following participation in the Arctic search for Sir John Franklin, the mariner and author William Parker Snow (1817-95) volunteered in 1854 to command the schooner Allen Gardiner, named after the man whose work for the South American Missionary Society was to be resumed. Although conceived as 'merely a simple narrative of daily life in the Southern Seas', this illustrated two-volume work becomes simultaneously a first-hand account of a sailor's experiences and observations, and a self-justification against those by whom he felt disappointed, frustrated and deceived. Volume 2 includes an account of meeting 'Jemmy Button', the Fuegian who had been taken to Britain on the Beagle. It also charts the series of difficulties Snow faced as captain, which culminated in his dismissal and abandonment on the Falklands. First published in 1857, the narrative met with some success. Snow, however, wasted the proceeds on a fruitless action against his former employers
