Fourth Edition, 1905. "Hubbard's objective was the eastern and northern part of Labrador's pennisula, and it is with this section that we shall hereafter deal. Relying upon the accompanying map of Labrador by A. P. Low of the Canadian Geological Survey, Hubbard planned to reach the mouth of the Northwest River, ascend the river to Lake Michikamau, and then, from the northern end of that lake, beat acroo the country to the George River. The Geological Survey map is the best of Labrador extant, but its representation as to the Northwest Rive (made from hearsay) proved to be wholly incorreect, and the mistake it led us into cost us dear.Not only this, but the George River country , which it was his ultimate purpose to reach, was, terra incognita. Here then, was an enterprise fully worthy of an ambitions and venturesome spirit.Here was a great, unknown wilderness into which even the half-breed native trappers who lived on its outskirts were afraid to penetrate, knowing that the wandering bands of Indians who occasionally traversed its fastnesses themselves frequently starved to death in that ihnospitable, barren country." from chapter I. Inked name on ffep with lightly age-toned text block edges, else, Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Dark-blue cloth with blind- stamped reproduction of illustration from page 60 and gilt lettering to front board and spine. Bookseller Inventory # 001750
