Editorial Reviews

Review

“‘Profiles in courage’ may be an overworked phrase, but it fits this story exactly. Melanie Mayer has assembled a group of remarkable women and she uses many of their own words in chronicling their experiences in the last great trek of the nineteenth century. The book is not only enlightening about the various trails to the Klondike—the Chilkoot, the White Pass, the Edmonton, and the Stikin-Teslin—but it is great armchair adventure as well.”
— R. N. DeArmond

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Kristi L. Waterworth on June 3, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really loved this book. I bought it in conjunction with a research project about Nellie Cashman, longtime resident of Arizona and one of American's earliest female mining experts. The details about the trials and tribulations of these people (women and men) are extrodinary. The author has really done her homework. She tries to tell the story of the Klondike by illustrating the trails with diary entries, personal accounts and contemporary pictures. I think she succeeds in doing just that and more. I recommend this book to anyone interested in Western history, in Mining history or even in Women's Studies.

GOOD BOOK! BUY ME NOW! :)

This book was very helpful in researching family genealogy of the Klondike area. I was searching for the maternal aunt of a Southern California pioneer who became rich and famous.
