The only comprehensive account of Captain Francis Crozier's extraordinary life, this is a tale of a great explorer, a lost love affair and an enduring mystery.

Join Dublin Book Festival for an afternoon with Polar historian Michael Smith, as he discusses his captivating historical work Icebound in the Arctic (The O’Brien Press) with best-selling author and fellow historian Turtle Bunbury.

Icebound in the Arctic charts the extraordinary life and endeavours of Captain Francis Hozier, a major figure in 19th century Arctic and Antarctic exploration, including the infamous, doomed Franklin Expedition. Recent discovery of his lost ships above the Arctic Circle have brought Crozier’s story to the forefront again, with the hope that new clues will shed some light on this Polar disaster shrouded in mystery. Why did he leave the only written clue to the biggest disaster in Polar history? Smith is an established writer on Polar exploration, having already published books on Shackleton and Tom Crean. His latest offering draws from historic records and modern revelations to bring new depth to Crozier’s epic story.
