A Cheechako in Alaska and Yukon

London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1920.

First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 291 pp + [1] ("Afterthoughts") and publisher's ads, with illustrations from photographs and a large folding map of the White Pass & Yukon Route, with inset Map of Atlin Lake District laid in at the back. Original red cloth with gilt lettering on spine. Spinelightly sunned, a bit of scattered foxing, attractive engraved bookplate (identifying the owner simply as "Alexandra") on the front pastedown. Cameron traveled extensively and generally alone, publishing books on Africa, South America, Mexico, and the South Seas, among others. Although she has been described by some critics as more of a globetrotting tourist than an explorer (see Robinson p. 177 and the DNB) she was elected to membership in the Royal Geographical Society in 1913, suggesting her contemporaries, at least, felt otherwise. Wickersham 10, Tourville 785.
