THE KLONDIKE GOLD RUSH:
PHOTOGRAPHS FROM 1896-1899


By Graham Wilson

(second hand copy in 'as new' condition)

The Klondike Gold Rush was a migration by an estimated 100,000 prospectors to the Klondike region of the Yukon in north west Canada between 1896 and 1899.

Gold was discovered there by local miners in August 1896, and, when news reached Seattle and San Francisco the following year, it triggered a stampede of prospectors. Some became wealthy, but the vast majority went in vain and the gold trail witnessed unimaginable suffering. 


These 125 archival photographs document the Klondike gold rush and tell the day-to-day story of the ordinary stampeder. Carefully selected anecdotes and written accounts provide insight and illumination of this fascinating event. This is the official book of the Klondike gold rush centennial.


Soft cover. 112 pages. 'As new' condition. Black and white photographs throughout. 
Published by Wolf Creek Books. 1997.
