Musical Interlude

Stan Rogers, Northwest Passage:

Rogers is less well-known to Americans than his fellow Canadian Gordon Lightfoot, which is a shame. Captain Sir John Franklin was an early polar explorer whose expedition to chart the Northwest Passage ended in shipwreck and cannibalism in the far north. Inuit (eskimoes) of the far north recall tales of Franklin's men handed down from their forefathers.
