Detailed Product Description
"This is an authorized  facsimile reprint of the original book, and was produced in 1971 by microfilm-xerography by University Microfilms, A Xerox Company, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA." 254 pp, frontis, and numerous text drawings including 12 full-page all in black and white, maps - some folding. In German. Navy cloth hardcover with gilt titles. Fine condition.

An account of the Schwatka Expedition of 1878-80 in the search for Franklin. The author was an artist and cartographer to this expedition and he covers mainly the internal life of the small group (five men), stressing those situations in which men battle the grim elements of the north with indigenous means. Their base was Camp Daly, northwest coast of Hudson Bay. The party proceeded inland in a northwesterly direction to King William Island and back (see also Gilder's narrative). Klutschak deals especially with the natives of the area (Netsilik and Iglulik Eskimos) describing and illustrating with numerous sketches, various features of their life, their snow houses, domestic utensils, food, dress, hunting, sledging, indoor amusements, string figures, song and drum play, etc. He depicts the party's observations and conversations in the Eskimo community regarding the relics from Franklin's ship. A rare account.
