The Klondike Stampede
UBC Press, 1. nov. 2011 - 496 strani
This classic in Yukon gold rush literature was originally published in 1900 and has long been out of print. Tappan Adney, a New York journalist, was dispatched to the Yukon in 1897, at the height of the gold fever, to 'furnish news and pictures of the new gold fields.' The pages contain excellent descriptions of the people, places, events, and experiences of the Klondike stampede. Adney was not only a good writer, he was also an accomplished photographer, and there are over 150 photographs and drawings in the text, adding an important visual dimension to the book.

"A life of freedom and adventure has a fascination which grows rather than diminishes...." The best book I've read on the 'Stampede'. It did a good job of reminding me what it was like when I went across the Chilkoot Trail. Celotno mnenje
