1923. Frontispiece by Frank Tenney Johnson. Out of the Silent North by the Western writer Drago begins: It was sunrise on the Nishnibottni River! Early spring was at hand, but it was not a spring of green grasses and warm days. Twice the wild geese, nosing out the Polar winds, see the sun rise and set as they line due north from the mighty St. Lawrence, before they breast the turbid waters of the river that flows both ways.
