Martin Frobisher never discovered the Northwest Passage on his three voyages to the Arctic between 1576 and 1578, but mistaken reports that he found gold started Canada's first gold rush. This book takes the reader from Frobisher Bay to Great Britian to solve the lingering mysteries of the venture: Was the ore truly worthless? Was fraud involved? Why did some of the ore disappear off the coast of Ireland?
