Editor's note: several studies of this title have surfaced; they are similar in style and theme but differ in minute ways from the final print version.

Illustration for an Eskimo folk tale in which a young man must brave many dangers, including running between the terrible clapping cliffs, to find his wife and child in the land of the birds, far to the north.
