Record #188953:

The use of dog sledges during the British search for the missing Franklin Expedition in the North American Arctic islands, 1848-59 / William Barr.

Title: The use of dog sledges during the British search for the missing Franklin Expedition in the North American Arctic islands, 1848-59 / William Barr.
Author(s): Barr, William.
Date: 2009.
In: Arctic. (2009.), Vol. 62(3) (2009)
Abstract: Describes deployment of dog sledges (as opposed to man-hauled sledges) on search for Franklin. Dog sledges were especially (though not exclusively) used as "couriers", for communication between various wintering ships, where speed was primary requirement. Total distance covered by dog sledges (excluding short hauls in vicinity of wintering ships) was, at minimum, 11,576 km.
