This book was published in 1910.

Not only do Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out in the noonday sun, but it seems that sometimes they venture into the frozen north as well, in winter, on foot, and alone. The author summarizes his "long tramp" across the Canadian wilderness thus:

"I started in the autumn of 1872 from the Red River of the North, and, reaching Lake Athabasca, completed half my journey by the first week of March in the following year. From Athabasca I followed the many-winding channel of the frozen Peace River to its great cañon in the Rocky Mountains, and, journeying through this pass—for many reasons the most remarkable one in the whole range of the Rocky Mountains—reached the north of British Columbia in the end of May. From thence, following a trail of 350 miles through the dense forests of New Caledonia, I emerged on the 3rd of June at the frontier station of Quesnelle on the Frazer River, still 400 miles north of Victoria."
