Stampede: Gold Fever and Disaster in the Klondike
A gripping account of the epic human tragedy that was the great Klondike Gold Rush of 1897. One hundred thousand men and women rushed north, into the teeth of winter, to make their fortunes. Very few got rich, but many thousands died in the attempt.
“A freight-train of a story that thunders along with all the energy of the tumultuous events it conjures. Sharply told from historical sources, Stampede is a saga of need, greed, and shattered fantasies, and the dark side of the American Dream.”
