Passage by John Walker( Visual )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La nouvelle secoua les anglophones du monde entier : L'explorateur britannique Sir John Franklin et son équipage avaient péri dans les glaces de l'Arctique en tentant de trouver le passage du Nord-Ouest. Et le plus choquant : ils avaient sombré dans la démence et s'étaient adonnés au cannibalisme. L'auteur du rapport était John Rae, un médecin écossais à l'emploi de la Compagnie de la Baie d'Hudson. Mais l'horrible nouvelle apportée par Rae déplut fortement à Lady Franklin, la veuve de l'explorateur, ainsi qu'à Charles Dickens. Par conséquent, ils menèrent une campagne qui discrédita la version de Rae, et donna des Inuits l'image funeste d'une nation de cannibales sanguinaires
