The White Pass

Gateway to the Klondike

Book - 1987
Rate this:
By the thousands they came, the gold-seekers of 1897, pouring through Alaska's White and Chilkoot passes on their way to the Klondike and to fortune. Fast behind them came the entrepreneurs, the bunco artists, and before long, the engineers and financiers whose driving ambition was to build a railway through the White Pass's rocky precipices. This is the epic northern adventure of the men who rushed for gold, the workers who toiled in winter storms and thaw-time muck, carving the grade and laying rail, and the ingenious characters who dreamed, schemed, promoted, and finally built the White Pass and Yukon Railway.
