Here is what the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette says of this lecture: After crossing the Continent, lecturing successfully from New York to San Francisco, Miss Field spent a summer in America's Wonderland, and gives a brilliant account of her experience. Alaska not only means grand glaciers, sjold miners, and a sea of mountains, but strange and varied humanity, in the guise of pioneer Whites, miners, Indians, Chinese and missionaries. Miss Field enlivens her lecture with anecdotes and legends of the Alaska Indians and concludes with a prophecy of the future of our Arctic Province that revives the predictions of Charles Summer and William II. Seward. This lecture should be heard by all thoughtful lyceum audiences. Brooklyn Eagle.—The most instructive and attractive lecture yet delivered on Alaska.
