KIRKUS REVIEW

As part of her work on a natural history of the North, the author took a trip to the Eastern Arctic aboard a ship belonging to the Hudson's Bay Company. Along with HBC personnel, Canadian government scientists and two Wisconsin tourists, Mrs. Fletcher travelled a thousand miles from Montreal down the St. Lawrence, up the wild Atlantic coast along Labrador, through the great ice fields of Hudson Straits and Ungava Bay, up to Arctic Baffin island, halfway down eastern Hudson Bay and across it to Churchill. This book with its descriptions of the strange and often magnificent Sub-Arctic land and waters, flower and fauna, should exert its chief appeal to those readers interested in natural history, since with its calm narrative and chatty tone it is by no means an adventure-travel book.
