Streeter: Hunter’s narration of his journey “to the Yukon in quest of Frances Lake” is taken from his diary. “Many things that I wrote in the field last summer read queerly today, but that may be accounted for by the fact that here on Long Island I am neither tired, hungry, nor wet. These three things strangely influence the amateur explorer.”

“A very interesting journal with sketch maps and drawings and photographs. Touches much country not before described and goats are discovered near Frances Lake …” — Phillips

The author thanks Charles Shelton of Washington, D.C. in the Aplogia for giving himm the idea to search for sheep at Frances Lake.
