Top of page

Rush for Gold gathers all the colourful, exciting, and tragic events of the Klondike into a coherent chronological perspective, tracing the effects of gold fever, the perils of the journey up the inland passage and over the White and Chilkoot Passes to Dawson. It also takes a brief look at early mining technology, Dawson City, the steamers on the River Yukon, and rail transportation. Rush for Gold is told in the first person by those who experienced the quest for riches in Canada's northwest.
