It records the details of a culture that, in many aspects, no longer exists. It is a fascinating narrative of his experiences during most of his stay in the Arctic, including a death-defying trek in the sub-zero frozen North. He never completed the story, ending it in Cumberland Sound, before his mapping trek across the mountains of Baffin Island. We have added a brief summary of the remaining portion of his expedition. Included are a few photographs and sketches (22, including the front cover) relating to Baffin Island. " .
