Excerpt from The Labrador Coast: A Journal of Two Summer Cruises to That Region; With Notes on Its Early Discovery, on the Eskimo, on Is Physical, Geography, Geology and Natural Hisoty The Labrador Peninsula is less known than the interior of Africa or the wastes of Siberia. Its rivers are still stocked with salmon; its inland waters are the breeding places of countless birds. Its numerous and deep fiords, and the splendid mountain scenery of the northern coast, with its Arctic icefields and thousand bergs, and the Eskimos, christianized and heathen, will never cease to tempt to this threshold of the Arctic regions the hardy explorer or the adventurous yachtsman. Though this book is mainly based on observations and collections made by the author in his early student days, it was thought that some general and standard account of the Labrador coast, its geography, its people, its fisheries, its geology, as well as its animals and plants, might be useful, even if future explorations of the great fiords and of the interior plateaux and rivers might in time result in far more complete works. The scientific results, geological and zoological, are reprinted from the Memoirs of the Boston Society of Natural History for 1867. Chapters I, II, III, and VI are reprinted by permission from the Bulletin of the American Geographical Society for 1888. Chapters IV and XIII first appeared in the American Naturalist, and Chapter Vis reprinted from Appletons' Journal.
