This classic in Yukon gold rush literature was originally published in 1900 and has long been out of print. Tappan Adney, a New York journalist, was dispatched to the Yukon in 1897, at the height of the gold fever, to 'furnish news and pictures of the new gold fields.' The pages contain excellent descriptions of the people, places, events, and experiences of the Klondike stampede. Adney was not only a good writer, he was also an accomplished photographer, and there are over 150 photographs and drawings in the text, adding an important visual dimension to the book.

It is 1899 as twenty-three-year-old Jackie Lindquist settles into a window seat on the train to St. Paul. Dissatisfied as a school marm, Jackie waves goodbye to her forlorn parents on the platform as her former life disappears behind her. Jackie does not look back, only ahead, for she is seeking adventure, riches, and possible romance-and she hopes to find it all amid the Klondike gold rush. Jackie quickly learns that a beautiful young woman traveling alone must face many challenges-one of which is dealing with lecherous men. Determined to not let anyone stop her from realizing her dreams, Jackie transforms her appearance that night and becomes Jack Lindquist. After she continues on to Seattle, she temporarily transforms back into a woman, finds a creative way to fund the remainder of her trip, and soon partners with the handsome Matt Stonemark. While making the dangerous trek to the Klondike, the two rescue and acquire another partner, the newly-widowed Maureen Wilson. As the trio finally reaches their destination in Canada, now only time will tell if each will find exactly what they are seeking. In this historical tale, three partners seeking adventure, love, and riches in the Klondike gold rush must learn to rely on perseverance, courage, and each other to make their dreams come true.

With the building of the railroad and the settlement of the plains, the North West was opening up. The Klondike stampede was a wild interlude in the epic story of western development, and here are its dramatic tales of hardship, heroism, and villainy. We meet Soapy Smith, dictator of Skagway; Swiftwater Bill Gates, who bathed in champagne; Silent Sam Bonnifield, who lost and won back a hotel in a poker game; and Roddy Connors, who danced away a fortune at a dollar a dance. We meet dance-hall queens, paupers turned millionaires, missionaries and entrepreneurs, and legendary Mounties such as Sam Steele, the Lion of the Yukon. Pierre Berton's riveting account reveals to us the spectacle of the Chilkoot Pass, and the terrors of lesser-known trails through the swamps of British Columbia, across the glaciers of souther Alaska, and up the icy streams of the Mackenzie Mountains. It contrasts the lawless frontier life on the American side of the border to the relative safety of Dawson City. Winner of the Governor General's award for non-fiction, Klondike is authentic history and grand entertainment, and a must-read for anyone interested in the Canadian frontier.

“Absolutely first-rate.”—The New Yorker This thrilling story is at once first-rate history and first-rate entertainment. Incredible events occurred in North America after a decrepit steamboat docked at Seattle in 1897 containing two tons of pure gold. So frenzied was the clash for gold and so scant was information about conditions in the Klondike that the rush for riches became a kind of fabulous madness. The entire tale—of which Pierre Berton’s account is the definitive telling—has an epic ring (legends were lived and fortunes were won) as much because of its splendid folly as because of its color and motion. “The definitive account of an affair as wildly improbable as any in North American history.”—Saturday Review “A lively saga of the great gold rush. It is the most complete and most authentic on the subject in English.”—The New York Times Book Review

Here is a compelling middle grade nonfiction tale of how one classic writer drew upon a rugged life of adventure to create works of literature, punctuated by stunning black-and-white art by Wendell Minor and illustrative photographic material. Swept up in the Gold Rush of 1897, young Jack London headed north to strike it rich in the Klondike and discovered something more precious than gold—the seeds of the stories that would flower into his classic novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, and timeless short stories such as "To Build A Fire." This gripping tale follows London as he treks up the ruthless Chilkoot Trail, braves the lethal Whitehorse Rapids, survives a bad case of scurvy, and conquers many more dangers of the Yukon during his quest for gold.

[What was life like during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898-1899? Life was harsh, dangerous, hard. And for the Stampeders, those who participated in the Klondike Stampede, life was a grand adventure. Few got rich, but those who survived their Yukon experience had a tale to tell. Wallis Sanborn was one of those who went north. While he did not gain gold, he did live to write his adventure. Through letters, a diary, and a keen memory for the details of daily existence, Wallis drafted his Klondike adventure. This narrative of Wallis Sanborn and his partner Dan Dever's journey from Illinois to the Klondike and back is entertaining and interesting and offers insight into the daily living activities of the Klondike Stampeder: What they ate, what they wore, the mining process, the trails they mushed, the road houses, tents, and cabins in which they slept. And, what makes this narrative absolutely unique are Wallis Sanborn's drawings of the natural world, of rivers and mountains, of his and Dan's cabin and their hand-made furniture. Also prominent are hand-drawn maps and photographs, handbills, travel receipts, and miner's certificates. The sketches and maps and photographs are not found in any extant Klondike narrative.]

Billy Orange, pugnacious little Irishman, five foot nothing and scared of nobody, rescues a man from a beating in a back alley in Seatle, and finds himself caught up in the Great Gold Rush to the Klondike. Arctic midwinter conditions, unscrupulous tricksters, romance, and death, test him, but nothing can stop him. From the Author My wife and I spent 10 weeks in the area in the Klondike fulfillment of my lifetime's ambition to go there. We panned on Bonanza, got eaten by mosquitoes, but found no gold; we gambled at Diamond Tooth Gertie's and lost our money; we sat out on the veranda of our B&B and drank whisky until near midnight and got sunburned, and we followed Granddad's tracks where we could - up the White Pass and along part of Lake Bennett. We walked stretches of the banks of the Yukon but never got to St. Michael. We sailed through the icebergs on Prince William Sound, out of Valdez, and spent days ferry boating up and down the Inside Passage, followed Humpback whales and caught salmon. Most of all though we sat and drank in the atmosphere, which is still well capable of kick starting a lively imagination like mine. It was a wonderful trip, and gave more meaning to Granddad's tales and to those of others who have chronicled the period and it sharpened my appetite to know even more. I've read and re-read Pierre's Berton's substantive book Klondike, a definitive volume full of incredible detail and marvelously readable. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone hungry for more on "The Last Great Gold Rush", as he puts it. I also enjoyed a much less well known book, A Hard Road to Klondike, by Michael MacGowan, and Garnet Basque's Gold Panners Manual, as well as watching every TV programme and video recording that I have come across. Some data from each of them has been grafted into Granddad's story to flesh it out and to provide continuity. For this I am more grateful than I can say, and I thank the writers and publishers of these books for permitting me to pick their brains. Alan Grainger Dublin 2004 Excerpts

Klondike Saga was first published in 1965. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. This is the story of the Monitor Gold Mining and Trading Company, an organization of sixteen Minnesotans who went to the Canadian Klondike region in the late 1890's to prospect for gold. It is based on diaries and letters written by the men during their venture. Most of the company members were of Scandinavian origin, recent immigrants to America, and a number of the letters were written to Nye Normanden, a Norwegian-language newspaper published in Minneapolis at the time. The leader of the company, Lars Gunderson, was the grandfather of the late Carl L. Lokke, author of the book. Mr. Lokke, a historian, was chief of the foreign affairs branch of the National Archives at the time of his death in 1960. This is the first book issued under a joint publishing arrangement between the University of Minnesota Press and the Norwegian-American Historical Association. It is Volume 7 in the association's Travel and Description Series. There is a preface by Kenneth O. Bjork, editor of the association, and Senator Ernest Gruening of Alaska writes a foreword.

Klondike Mike: An Alaskan Odyssey is Merrill Denison’s 1943 biography of Mike Ambrose Mahoney, a Canadian who travelled to the North in 1897 in search of gold and adventure. In Klondike Mike—a popular “Book of the Month Club” choice—Denison uses imagined omnipotent disclosures of his subject’s thoughts to enrich his writing with a sense of immediacy. In episodic scenes, readers accompany Mahoney through mishaps and adversity: Mahoney hauling a piano on his back up the Chilkoot Pass so that the Sunny Samson Sisters Sextette can get to Dawson to make their fortunes entertaining prospectors; or Mahoney setting a record with his team of dogs as they race across the frozen North from Dawson to Skagway in only fourteen days. The dramatic tension inherent in each of these adventures provides Klondike Mike with a surging narrative pulse and pace—a clever evocation of gold rush fever. In these ways, Klondike Mike demonstrates that Denison should be considered an early innovator of the genre now known as creative non-fiction. Richly illustrated throughout.

This new and abridged version of a classic in Western literature tells the story of a New York socialite who braved the Yukon in 1898 in search of gold. In diary form, Hitchcock describes in detail the people she met and her impressions of rural Alaska and Dawson City. An outrageous adventure for general readers, armchair travelers, and anyone interested in the lives of American women in the late 1800s. Two Women in the Klondike created a sensation when it was first published in 1899. The idea that two well-bred socialites could survive the dangers of the North thrilled nineteenth-century readers from San Francisco to New York. When Mary Hitchcock heard about the discovery of gold in the Klondike in 1898, she left her privileged city life for the wilds of Alaska, planning to stake her own claims. She persuaded her friend Edith Van Buren to accompany her, and the two began preparations for roughing it. The necessities that they brought up the Yukon River to Dawson City, Canada, included a portable bowlingalley, an ice cream maker, a Great Dane named Ivan, and a full-sized circus tent. Hitchcock relates the struggles, surprises, and pleasures of traveling in the late nineteenth century in her trademark style. She describes in diary form the people she metand her impressions of rural Alaska and Dawson City. Invaluable for its detailed descriptions of manners, food, and personalities, Hitchcock's account of the Klondike Gold Rush is an outrageous adventure for general readers, armchair travelers, and anyone interested in the lives of American women in the late 1800s. This new, abridged version includes a map of Hitchcock's northern travels and an introduction by Terrence Cole, professor of history at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

A gripping and wholly original account of the epic human tragedy that was the great Klondike Gold Rush of 1897-98. One hundred thousand men and women rushed heedlessly north to make their fortunes; very few did, but many thousands of them died in the attempt. In 1897, the United States was mired in the worst economic depression that the country had yet endured. So when all the newspapers announced gold was to be found in wildly enriching quantities at the Klondike River region of the Yukon, a mob of economically desperate Americans swarmed north. Within weeks tens of thousands of them were embarking from western ports to throw themselves at some of the harshest terrain on the planet--in winter yet--woefully unprepared, with no experience at all in mining or mountaineering. It was a mass delusion that quickly proved deadly: avalanches, shipwrecks, starvation, murder. Upon this stage, author Brian Castner tells a relentlessly driving story of the gold rush through the individual experiences of the iconic characters who endured it. A young Jack London, who would make his fortune but not in gold. Colonel Samuel Steele, who tried to save the stampeders from themselves. The notorious gangster Soapy Smith, goodtime girls and desperate miners, Skookum Jim, and the hotel entrepreneur Belinda Mulrooney. The unvarnished tale of this mass migration is always striking, revealing the amazing truth of what people will do for a chance to be rich.
