The traveler passing up or down the river during this busy season would form an entirely erroneous estimate of the density of the population if he should draw the conclusion that the vast forests covering the mountains and ?ows on either side are inhabited by other tribes. Were he to make a brief excursion into the almost impenetrable forests and over the hills and mountains he would quickly perceive that along the river alone exist the conditions necessary to sustain life throughout the year. The small rivulets of the interior, and the vast swampy plains covered with snow for seven or eight months of the year, are only visited by the trapper and hunter when the skins of the marten, mink, and musk-rat are in their prime. Tere the mountains are higher along the upper courses of the Yukon and the Tennanah game is more abundant and the inhabitants are less dependent upon the river and its fish.
