Stampede: Gold Fever and Disaster in the Klondike
“A freight-train of a story that thunders along with all the energy of the tumultuous events it conjures. A saga of need, greed, shattered fantasies, and the dark side of the American Dream“
“With appearances by Jack London, Frederick Trump and a lengthy cast of lively characters, Stampede kept me up late, night after night, unable to stop turning the pages.”
In the summer of 2016, I set out to retrace Mackenzie’s steps, paddling the 1125 mile Mackenzie River to the Arctic Ocean.
“Disappointment River” is the story of two journeys, mine and Mackenzie’s, and how and why we each found something very different at the end of that river.
Named an Amazon Book of the Year for 2018
“Castner has the Conradian ability to make you see and feel … Disappointment River abounds in vivid details.”
