Detailed Product Description
Chicago: McClurg, 1887, 1st edition. 248 pp, illustrated with plates, numerous text illustrations and 2 folding maps. Original blue-grey cloth Hardcover with bright gilt titles and kayak vignette in black on upper board; spine faded and rubbed, gilt titles dulled but still legible. Previous owner's book plate on front paste down. A Very Good copy.

''First edition of this fascinating account by the famed Victorian big game hunter, archaeologist, mountaineer, and explorer. Seton Karr (1859-1938) describes in the book how his party were some of the first passengers to cross Canada by the new Canadian Pacific Railway, then a steamship journey north, where he made an attempt to scale the 18,000 ft. summit of Mount St. Elias, but his climbing party was forced back at 7200 feet. Of interest are also his observations of Alaskan Native Americans including a vocabulary for Chugachmiut Indians, big game hunting, the Aleutian Islands, the Alaskan Fur Trade, and more.''

''Account of the author's visit, 1886, in the region of Yakutat Bay, Copper River, and Prince William Sound, with description of an attempted ascent of Mt. St. Elias, of the life, country and the natives'' [Arctic Bibliography, 15786]. ''Seton Karr not only describes the terrain and people of the region, he hunted brown bear, black tail deer, seal, sea otter, grouse, waterfowl and the like, with additional notes of fishing for salmon.''
