Editorial Reviews


“A blend of narrative nonfiction and biography that offers the first in-depth look at Kate Carmack's life. The book is a formidable feat of research.”
(Alaska Dispatch News)

"Caught in the whirlwind of the gold rush in Alaska was Kate Carmack, the Tagish Indian wife of prospector George Carmack. Either Kate, her husband, or her brother found the nugget of gold that set off the Klondike Gold Rush. The truth is lost to history, as she almost was. Fiction author Vanasse became fascinated with Kate and spent three years combing through historical records, oral histories, and memories of family members to rediscover the life of this remarkable woman. . . . A  very enjoyable biography of a woman on the cusp of change in the North. Recommended."

“Vanasse’s carefully researched, beautifully written biography, Wealth Woman, helps to fill many of the information gaps in the chronology of Kate’s event-filled multi-cultural life. . . . There is much to learn, enjoy, and recommend in this book.”
(Pacific Northwest Quarterly)

“An excellent example of the new western history that seeks to recover previously marginalized voices.”
(Ross Coen, author of Fu-go: The Curious History of Japan’s Bomb Attack on America)

Winner in "Women" Category
(Best Biography of 2016 True West)

About the Author
