Gold fever!When the steamships Excelsior and Portland docked in San Francisco and Seattle in the spring of 1897 bringing news that gold had been discovered in the Canadian Yukon, gold fever hit. Soon thousands of stampeders from as far away as Europe were making their way to the Klondike, sure that they were going to strike it rich. Very few had even the slightest idea of just how inhospitable the Klondike was, how dangerous the journey would be, and how slim their chances were of making enough money there just to turn around and get home. With striking and often poignant archival photographs and an engaging text, Charlotte Jones explains the events leading up to the Yukon gold rush and the amazing events that followed the discovery of gold and changed Alaska forever. Maps, bibliography, and index are included.
