A rare narrative of a hunting expedition from Sault Ste. Marie to the Red River, Lac La Plume, Edmondton and back, with extensive notes on hunting buffalo. The expedition lasted from 19 April to 31 October 1847. “This Journal was written, day by day, on Steamers, in Canoes, at the Forts, in Tents, or by the Camp-fires in the open,---in small pocket-books easily carried; and then, on Frederick Graham’s return home was copied out, chiefly by a young sister still in the school room, and by others of the family, and the manuscript remained untouched for fifty years,---when Hermione Graham had it typed and printed in its present form, without however adding anything to the original, with the exception of the explanatory footnotes where these were required to make the sense clearer for sons, daughters, and grandchildren. November, 1897.” (from the text)
