GOOD BOOK! BUY ME NOW! :)
Read this in conjunction with Rebel Women of the Klondike.
I started my Klondike study with the book The Klondike Fever by Breton which while far more detailed, gives another view of many of the same events and varies in details on who did what and why. The entire study is one of widespread mania, greed, deception, tragedy and hopes, sometimes fulfilled to the ultimate and banked, others fulfilled and on top of the world until the gold ran out, the land lots in town went from thousands apiece to nothing and people marooned in the White North with so little to eat they starved. This has epic movie written all over it. I move for Brad Pitt as lead protagonist, leaving New York on the marketing wave of Gold In Them Thar Hills. Cameo by Jack Nicholson as the land baron cashing in the mania with paddle boats and hotels. Angelica Huston as the hotel lady [name escapes me] whose shipment was abandoned by a contract hauler and she went down to the docks and found the meanest guys around, had them fight it out for boss, then marched up the mountain, commandeered her load and all the horses of the defalcating contract hauler. Who needs fiction? This stuff is amazing.
