I consider this the definitive book on the Klondike Gold Rush. You don't have to be a Klondike enthusiast to enjoy this book, because Berton is first and foremost a storyteller, and the historical facts come alive in his writing. Interesting, informative, highly entertaining and hugely enjoyable, the book covers all the drama from the first discovery to the last days of the Klondike Kings.
Berton, who grew up in the Yukon himself, tells the story as no one else can. Few of the people who dashed to the north actually made it to the gold fields, and by the time they got there, the richest claims had long been snapped up, so fewer still struck it rich.
Winner of the Governor General's award for non-fiction, Klondike is authentic history and grand entertainment, and a must-read for anyone interested in the Canadian frontier.
The Klondike Gold Rush was a migration by an estimated 100,000 prospectors to the Klondike region of the Yukon, in north-western Canada, between 1896 and 1899. Gold was discovered there by local miners on August 16, 1896, and, when news reached Seattle and San Francisco the following year, it triggered a stampede of prospectors. Some became wealthy, but the majority went in vain. It has been immortalized in popular culture, . in artifacts, films, games, literature, and photographs.

In theory, no support of the shaft was necessary because of the permafrost although in practice sometimes the fire melted the permafrost and caused collapses. Fires could also produce noxious gases, which had to be removed by bellows or other tools. The resulting "dirt" brought out of the mines froze quickly in winter and could be processed only.

Weare on her le voyage to the sea, white wood smoke erupting from her twin black stacks. Two days ahead of her chugged the . he leaden expanse of the river. The brief sub-Arctic spring had yielded to summer, and the hills along the river were ablaze with crimson drifts of fireweed, accented by the blues of lupins and the yellows of arnicas and daisies. The air was heady with the pungent incense of balm of Gilead. Robins warbled among the birches, woodpeckers drummed against the spruce bark, moosebirds.
