PUBLISHERS NOTE
of Siberia, but because it shows a possible way of in
creasing in the present emergency the resources of the
enemies of Germany. The railway route from that
country westward to the Baltic and eastward to the
Pacific is so long as to render the freight prohibitive
even if the overland route were not anyhow hopelesslv
congested in war time.
It may be hoped, therefore, that efforts will be made
next season to take advantage of the experience of Dr
Nansen and his companions and to establish regular
communication between the Kara Sea and Western
Europe, during the months in which that sea is avail
able to navigation.
While everything that leads to a better knowledge
and understanding of our Russian Allies and their
country cannot fail to interest us, it is in particular
tne practical consideration referred to—namely, the
possibihty of increasing our food-supply by a’ new
route—that has led the publisher to issue this book at
tne present juncture.
