In addition to Healy's narrative, this volume includes shorter accounts by expedition members who were sent to complete the survey of the Koowak River (J. C. Cantrell) and explore the Noatak River (S. B. McLenegan). C. H. Townsend contributed an article on the natural history and ethnology of northern Alaska.
