'Narrative of the Second Arctic Expedition made by Charles F.

The book includes accounts of the sledge journeys to Igloolik, along the east side of Melville Peninsula to Fury and Hecla Strait, around and across Repulse Bay, two journeys to King William Island, information on flora and fauna, and much more.
