Detailed Product Description
New York, 1915, 1st edition. 226 pp, 12 b/w photos, map. Teal cloth pictorial hardcover with a minor wear at top and bottom spine, else fine and bright. A very nice Near Fine copy.

Young was one of the first missionaries sent to Alaska and served as John Muir's companion. 

He went to Fort Wrangel, Alaska as a missionary and explorer, organized the first Protestant Church in Alaska, held pastorates in California, Illinois, Iowa, and Ohio and was later sent to the Klondike. In 1879 and again in 1880 he accompanied John Muir when he discovered Glacier Bay, Alaska. 

During a mountain climb on Mount Glenora near the Stikine River, he almost fell to his death after dislocating both arms and was only saved from a narrow ledge when John Muir pulled him to safety with his teeth. This story is detailed by John Muir and Young in multiple subsequent publications. 

In 1904, he established the First Presbyterian Church in the new town of Fairbanks. He was appointed superintendent of Presbyterian missions in Alaska. He was the Special Representative of the Presbyterian National Board of Missions. While exploring Alaska with John Muir, Young undertook a census of the native people living there.
