Report of Exploration & Investigation Along Canada's Arctic Coast Line from the Delta of the Mackenzie River to Hudson Bay 1925-1926

A report about the Northwest Territories and the Yukon prepared by Major L.T. Burwash (L.T. standing for Lachlin Taylor, variously spelled Lachan and Lachlan). There are 142 typed pages plus appendices, photos, and maps. The photographs depict the local people and their practices, as well as some of Burwash, and the landscape. There is also a snapshot, a note about the book from a bookseller, a map of his travels, a pamphlet for the Northwest Territories 1933, and an obituary from the New York Times, tucked into the front. The book, text, and photographs, are all in very good condition.
