It was a voyage which led into unknown seas and to numerous perils fromdangerous waters and hostile natives. It had both diplomatic and Imperial objectives and it resulted in the opening to navigation of the famous Inside Passage." - from the dust jacket. "From much accumulated data we have woven a non-fiction historical book which it is hoped will fill a practical need in the literature of the Pacific Coast and the Hawaiian Islands, and mayinterest readers in Canada, the United States, Hawaii and Great Britain.
