Item is a newspaper clipping describing in great detail the 1893 expedition to the barren lands of J.B. and James Tyrrell. The Tyrrells were accompanied by 3 Mohawk brothers from Kahnawake, Quebec, and by 3 Chipewyans from Saskatchewan, who acted as canoeists and guides. The survey party travelled by canoe, dog team and on foot. J.B. Tyrrell describes the party's encounter with 'a veritable sea of reindeers' in the barren lands, and the excellent care received by the ailing and exhausted expedition members from Rev. Joseph Lofthouse at Churchill, Manitoba.
"Item located on p. 34-35 of 'Scrapbook of clippings, 1884-1898' which forms part of the series entitled 'Newspaper clippings and printed materials'."
