Arctic Artist is the liveliest and most complete account of Sir John Franklin's tragic first expedition to the Arctic. George Back's prose captures the drama of the journey, while his superb watercolour sketches reveal the beauty and wonder of this northern land. Published for the first time, this is the complete text of Back's journal. Arctic Artist completes Stuart Houston's trilogy of the journals of Franklin's officers.
