Report on an Exploratory Survey Between Great Slave Lake and Hudson Bay Districts of Mackenzie and Keewatin
TYRRELL, J. W.
James Williams Tyrrell, explorer and mine promoter, practised engineering in Hamilton, Ontario until 1893 when he embarked with his brother Joseph on a canoe trip across the interior of Keewatin District. His book describing the expedition, Across the Sub-Arctics of Canada (1897), is a classic of northern travel writing. In 1900 Tyrrell led a Dominion Lands Survey expedition through the Keewatin and issued the report of which this is a part.
