Camp on the Yukon
by Chapman, John Wright

Camp on the Yukon 
Front Cover

  Camp on the Yukon: 'These chapters of reminiscence were written by one who, when a young man of 29, adventured out to Alaska in the year 1887, in response to the call of the Church.

Commander Stockton, of the revenue cutter BEAR, on his yearly voyages up the Pacific coast, had seen the effects of the crimes of unprincipled men from whalers and other ships against the Eskimo people, the exploitation, liquor and debauchery which threatened their extermination. He called up on the Church to send Christian men to their rescue and defense.

He did not go up the coast to the Eskimo, though greatly attracted to them, but was led by circumstances, the invitation from a group of natives of the Yukon, to go with them and settle in their village, a fishing village located on the point of land at the confluence of the Anvik river with the Yukon.
