He was a prolific author of popular scientific and exploration materials, producing 4 major government reports on the North-West and Labrador, and 6 books, 25 pamphlets and 22 articles on subjects ranging from railway policy to geology to spectrum analysis. The high points of his career were the 2 expeditions into the Red River, Assiniboine and Saskatchewan countries in 1857 and 1858, for which Hind was the scientific observer, naturalist and geologist. These expeditions did much to effect an awareness of the potential of the great North-West in the Canadas. The most important work resulting from these explorations is the 2-volume Narrative of the Canadian Red River Exploring Expedition of 1857 and of the Assiniboine and Saskatchewan Exploring Expeditions of 1858 (1860).
