Detailed Product Description
Canada, McGill University Press, 1997, 1st ed. 258 pages, many photos. Hardcover, DJ, Like New. 

The story of Margaret Penny (née Irvine, 1812 - 1891), an explorer and pioneer who was the first Scottish woman to go on an expedition to Baffin Island in Nunavut, Canada.

In 1857 Penny sailed with her husband, Captain William Penny (1809-1892), on an Arctic whaling voyage. There had been for some time a significant British whaling industry, but very few women ever experienced it directly, and those who did mostly sailed to the South Seas. 

Penny sailed from Aberdeen Scotland on the whaling ship The Lady Franklin in August 1857, returning in August of the following year. On this voyage she was accompanied by her son and the Moravian missionary Mathias Warmow. The ship was named after Jane Franklin, widow of the explorer John Franklin, who had disappeared in the Arctic.
