Notes This pen and ink with watercolor shows a Cree Indian with his dog team. The Cree, dressed in his capote, tied with a sash such as Russell wore, follows his dogs through the snow. Russell likely created this small sketch as a recollection of when he traveled to Canada in February of 1903 to fulfill his urge to see the last frontier of the Klondike area.
