Additional Details:
This race of people are considered one of the most hardiest of the human family. They get their subsistence from hunting by sea, using for the purpose skin-boats where the sea is open and dog sledges on the ice. From the skin, blubber and flesh of the seal and the cetaceous animals they procure clothes, light and food. They rarely withdraw more than twenty miles from the seashore. The Eskimo dog is a hardy and powerful animal, in form resembling the shepherd dog. He is used by the natives and explorers as a beast of burden
