For twenty years, Captain Thierry Mallet, President of the New York branch of the Parisian furriers Revillon Freres, spent part of each year inspecting the company's 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."
