Record #164349:

"Once bitten, twice shy": cultural arrogance and the final Franklin expedition / Richard C. Davis.

Title: "Once bitten, twice shy": cultural arrogance and the final Franklin expedition / Richard C. Davis.
Author(s): Davis, Richard C.
Date: 2002.
In: Polar Geography. (2002.), Vol. 26(1) (2002)
Abstract: Critical reassessment of contemporary 'post-colonialist' view of Franklin as unwilling or incapable of learning from Inuit travel and survival techniques. Suggests rather that he was constrained by his cultural background and that when he did seek assistance from native peoples, he was frustrated by mutual incomprehension and circumstance. Discusses first two expeditions.
