Mais les deux vaisseaux, l'Erebus et le Terror, se retrouvent prisonniers des glaces. L'enthousiasme de l' quipage fait alors place une lutte perdue contre la faim et le froid. George et un officier sont les derniers survivants.

A dramatic Arctic adventure set during Sir John Franklin's doomed search for the Northwest Passage.

George Chambers is a fourteen-year-old aboard HMS Erebus, one of two ships under the command of Sir John Franklin on his quest to discover the Northwest Passage. But when the Erebus and Terror are trapped in crushing ice, 129 men of the crew die from cold, scurvy and starvation.

George recalls the events that led him to Canada's desolate North, and the expedition's failure -- including gravediggers, a close call with a polar bear, standing up against sailors threatening mutiny, and his own impending death.
