HMS Resolute: From the Canadian Arctic to the Presidents Desk and How She Prevented a War
How did a ship involved in a failed search for a lost explorer alter the course of history and become the symbol of Anglo-American friendship? Sent into the Arctic to find Franklin in 1852, HMS Resolute was abandoned; then salvaged by an American whaler,who brought her home on Christmas Eve 1855. When Britain and America were on the brink of their 3rd war, she became the focus of the hostilities...and then history was changed forever!

Follow the divergent lives of a sadistic commander, a Quaker abolitionist, an intrepid Arctic explorer, a pro-slavery senator, an Irish sea captain's wife and headstrong daughter, and a Yankee whaler as they intertwine in the incredible story of HMS Resolute!
