notes: 
Text notes that this group of Eskimos was friendlier than the previously encountered one.Franklin's first overland expedition went from the western shore of Hudson Bay to the Arctic Ocean between 1819 and 1822. This book describes his second overland expedition from the mouth of the Mackenzie River in northwest Canada to Point Beechey in present-day Alaska. A second part of the expedition travelled from the Mackenzie to the Coppermine River.
