Hind was appointed by the Canadian government to conduct a survey of the Labrador Peninsula: "All that Mr. Hind undertakes, is done so thoroughly that little more could be indicated, to complete the exhaustion of his subject. [His] volumes are almost entirely occupied with incidents of Indian life and character, particularly of the Montagnais, Abenakis, and Esquimaux Indians" (Field). Field 700; Sabin 31933. (2)
