About

During the winter of 1820-1821, at their camp Fort Enterprise, Lieutenant George Back and Lieutenant Robert Hood of the expedition party competed over the affections of the Copper Indian Green Stockings, who was "considered by her tribe to be a great beauty". John Franklin's expedition of 1819-22 travelled via the Coppermine River to map the Canadian Arctic coast, as part of efforts to find the fabled North-West Passage. Illustration from Narrative of a journey to the shores of the Polar Sea, by John Franklin (London, 1823).

Original: aquatint. 1823
