As He Followed The Lonely Trails To Fort Cumberland, Or Sailed Along The Solitary Shores Of Lake Winnipeg, How Little

Could he guess that in less than a century a hundred thousand inhabitants would dwell by the shore of the

Great lake, or that its primeval regions would one day provide largely the bread of his countrymen.

There civilisation has followed fast indeed, and ever it presses forward on the tracks of the pioneer. But even today if we follow Franklin we must come again to the wild - to the great Barren Lands and to the ice-bound limit of a Continent - regions where for ninety years season has succeeded season without change - where few have passed since his day and Nature alone holds sway. For those who would know what IS as well as for those who would know what HAS BEEN, this narrative still holds its original interest; all must appreciate that it records the work of a great traveller and a gallant man whose fame deserves to live.

R.F. SCOTT.
