Item Details
Description
Great Stories of Canada Series, "The Golden Trail, The Story of the Klondike Rush", by Pierre Berton, illustrated by Duncan Macpherson, published by Macmillan, Toronto, 1954, First Edition.

The Golden Trail is the story of the Klondike Gold Rush of 1896 by one of Canada's best journalists. It was one of several titles esteemed Canadian historians contributed to the Great Stories of Canada series.
Pierre Berton tells a gripping tale of unbelievable hardship and superhuman effort. Through story and anecdote, he passionately describes the fever that overcame usually sane men as word got out about the original George Carmack / Robert Henderson discovery; the first frenzied days of the gold rush, when men the world over left their jobs and loved ones in the quest for Yukon gold; the misery of man and beast alike as they struggled up the brutal White and Chilkoot passes; the painstaking, endless, and often thankless exertion required by prospectors as they worked their claims, panning and sluicing for gold; and the fortunes won and lost on the streets and in the saloons of boomtown Dawson City
