Before the Gold Rush: The Great Klondike Gold Rush

Before the Gold Rush: The Great Klondike Gold Rush

Paperback(Mass Market Paperback)



Before news of the great Klondike gold discovery was heard 'round the world in the summer of 1897, several hundred fortune-seekers were already scrabbling for wealth along creek banks in the Yukon and Alaska. Cut off from the so-called civilized world, clustered in squalid log towns with names like Circle City and Fortymile, these prospectors lived hard lives. They were men who 'craved the widest possible freedom of action' yet each tried to follow an unwritten code of behaviour as strict as any law. Written especially for pre-teen and young teenage readers.
