THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE A VOLCANO OF PENT-UP ADVENTURES This French-Canadian trapper told yarns all night, with only two hours' rest, and shouted the end of one as the canoeists rounded the bend next day. Photograph from Amos Burg WHEN PURSUED, CARIBOU SWIM IN CLOSE FORMATION The Barren Ground caribou is one of the most important animals of the Arctic. Scarcely anything manufactured equals caribou skin as warm clothing. In many places in Alaska and arctic Canada the natives live for long periods exclusively upon caribou meat. The number of animals is reported to have decreased alarmingly and in some sections that once pastured vast herds only an occasional scattered band is now seen.
