In 1895, at the age of nineteen, Pete Haslam emigrated to America, and never saw Ireland nor his family again. He made a small fortune in the Klondike Gold Rush, and then became one of the Pioneers who founded modern Alaska. He spent a fascinating life as a gold miner, in the last frontier of Wiseman, seventy five miles north of the Arctic Circle. For generations, none of his family knew anything about Pete's life, except that Bob Marshall met him in 1930, while researching for his book "Arctic Village". Now, for the first time ever, his grand-nephew, Joe, presents this factual account of Pete's life.
