“It’s always the way, Wallace! When a fellow starts on the long trail, he’s never willing to quit. It’ll be the same with you if you go with me to Labrador. When you come home, you’ll hear the voice of the wilderness calling you to return, and it will lure you back again.”
It was Leonidas Hubbard, the heroic explorer, who spoke these words to Dillon Wallace when they were lying by a camp fire in the snow-covered Shawangunk mountains where they planned the trip that cost them indescribable suffering, and Hubbard his life.
“The work must be done, Wallace, and if one of us falls before it is completed the other must finish it.”
Wallace returned to keep the compact, and “The Long Labrador Trail” is the story of marvelous adventure, discovery, and brilliant description of the exploration of the land that lured, the hitherto unknown country, where the Eskimo builds his igloo and hunts the walrus and the seal.
The story is one of brave and successful exploration, of interesting anecdote, of human feeling, with scientific accuracy characterizing the fund of information, and many photographs illuminating the text.

With the intense interest in Mexico which now obtains everywhere, this fascinating volume attains to new values.
“There is no area of equal extent that can approach Mexico in wealth of natural resources, variety of climate, grandeur of scenery, prehistoric ruins, and romantic history,” writes the author in his Introduction.
“Here you witness the incomparable scenery of an old, new land with its snow-clad peaks, its magnificent mountain heights, its awe-inspiring canyons, its vast plains, its picturesque villages, its ancient ruins, its historic towns, and quaint corners.
“Within the borders of our neighbor republic there is a territory one-quarter as large as the United States, with a coast line of six thousand miles. In Mexico practically every product of the soil of the tropical and temperate zones can be grown to perfection. Here are vast primordial forests, and incalculable wealth of minerals.”
