The Northwest Passage, part of Canada's territory since 1880, has greater profile than ever as a warmer climate increases the opportunities to let ships through, and Canada decides how to protect these waters.

There was a time when the Northwest Passage was a key issue for all of Europe. European countries all wanted to be the first to find this legend of a shortcut. Explorers of this area were heroes: they wrote books and they were treated almost like today's movie stars.

Impractical clothing on their backs, foolish notions in their heads, and weevil-infested food in their stomachs, these explorers met with the most extreme conditions many of them could ever have imagined. The cold. The dark winters. The lack of food. The disease. No wonder they were sometimes forced to eat skinned rats, or even their shoes!

This exciting new addition to the Dreadful Truth series tells the stories of these early expeditions, without leaving out all the best bits!

TED STAUNTON divides his time between writing and a busy schedule as a speaker, workshop leader, storyteller and musical performer for children and adults. His previous books include the well-loved Green Applestreet Gang series, the Cyril and Maggie series, the Morgan series, Puddleman, Simons Surprise, several titles in the Dreadful Truth series including the Canadian Children's Centre Our Choice selection The Dreadful Truth: Confederation, and the acclaimed Hope Springs a Leak, which was shortlisted for both a Silver Birch Award and a Hackmactack Award.
