I was surprised to find this book as interesting as it was. In 1899 E. H. Harriman organized (and funded) a trip to Alaska, which he led . He took his whole family, including his 8-year-old son , Averell, as well as many scientists and the naturalists Willaim Burroughs and John Muir. Some of the people on the expedition, including Harriman, did a lot of killing of birds and animals. The ship even went across to Siberia and made a stop there. The book was published in 1982 and so tells of the results of the expediton and what became of some of the people who were on it.
