Detailed Product Description
St. Louis, J. W. Henry, 1894 reprint. 418 pp, many b/w photos, map. Thick blue hardcover, All edges have wear, hinges are cracked or loose, rubbing to covers and some pages. Very Good overall.

Schwatka is of interest to us because his was the first attempt to climb Mount St. Elias. 

A thorough history of the then known Alaska, from its mountains to its rivers, natural resources, timber and gold, wildlife the Grizzly and Kodiak bear and the abundant sea life notably the Salmon. Also the Eskimo, the Indians, Chilkat, Tahkheesh, and Tlinkit, the Fur Trade and traders, the Hudson Bay Company being the largest, etc. 

Account of a raft trip down the length of the Yukon River in pre-Klondike Gold Rush period. He is responsible for many of geographical names along the Yukon River. Schwatka (1849-1892) crossed the Chilkoot Pass and explored the Yukon River in 1883 under orders from General Nelson A. Miles and without notifying the Canadian government.
