Rae (1813-93) was the only major British Arctic explorer never to receive a knighthood. His error, says Calgary-based novelist McGoogan, was that when he returned to London in the middle 1850s, from his explorations across what would become northern Canada, he brought tragic news of the long-lost expedition led by Sir John Franklin and so brought on his head the vilification of such powers as Lady Franklin and Charles Dickens.
