Unearth the shocking story of Franklin's final expedition through the Death in the Ice Maritime Lecture Series.
Author and polar guide Kari Herbert draws on her own experience of a polar-exploring family to tell the dramatic 'behind the scenes' stories of the heroic age of exploration.
Herbert's vivid storytelling brings to life three remarkable women: sculptor Kathleen Scott; Jo Peary - the first white woman to travel in the high Arctic, and the indomitable Jane Franklin, and shows how these women played a crucial role in supporting their husbands’ expeditions.
Herbert began her own travelling at the age of ten months when she went to live on a remote island in the High Arctic with her mother and father, pioneering explorer Sir Wally Herbert. Her memoir, The Explorer’s Daughter, was a Radio 4 Book of the Week and her other books, including Explorers' Sketchbooks, Heart of the Hero and In Search of the South Pole have been translated into multiple languages.
