This is a collection of very short stories about the Far North. Fur-trappers, Indians, sled-dogs and wild animals all play a role here, and they are all equally entertaining, sometimes dramatic, many times quite moving.

This is the introduction:
"The true romance of the far North has been captured in these short stories gathered and written by Captain Thierry Mallet, President of Revillon Frères, New York. For the past twenty years he has spent part of each year inspecting our trading-posts on the outskirts of civilization.

Through his long arduous journeys over the swift waters, as well as the vast areas of ice-clad country in the North, and through his constant companionship with the fearless men of these barren lands, Captain Mallet is particularly fitted to give us these unusual and striking tales."
Victor Revillon,
Jean M. Revillon.
