Arctic Ordeal: The Journal of John Richardson, Surgeon-Naturalist with Franklin, 1820-1822
In addition to his achievements as a doctor, meteorologist, and cartographer, Richardson was the first great naturalist to study the North American Arctic. His journal made such an outstanding contribution to ornithology, ichthyology, botany, and geology that much of modern Arctic research is founded upon his observations.
