"Every traveller is affected to a certain extent by the scenes through which he pauses. The climate, customs and associations of each place, whether he will or not, have an influence upon his whole being.... Can one visit the arctic region of Alaska, whose snowy peaks and giant glaciers are unsurpassed by the known wonders of the globe - whose untold wealth reminds him of the subterranean treasure of the genii, - and come away no richer in thought and feeling from the
experience of this journey to the land of the midnight sun?"
CHARLES M. TAYLOR
Touring Alaska and the Yellowstone, 1901
