30 Years in the Golden North
by Welzl, Jan

30 Years in the Golden North 
Front Cover
Inside Page

  Jan Welzl, a Czech by birth, a locksmith by trade, decided to seek his fortune in the Far North, traveled by wagon across the wilds of Siberia, then on a whaling ship up to the Arctic Circle. In simple, lively, humorous fashion he tells the story of his arduous journey, and of how he became a successful trader, with headquarters in a commodious cave on the rocky coast of New Siberia, an island in the Arctic Ocean, where he has lived for over thirty years.

In his account of adventures among Eskimos and gold miners he tells how he adopted an Eskimo baby to save it from being thrown into the sea, took a rich American women to board in his cave through a whole winter, was storm-bound in a blizzard without food for four days, enjoyed a host of other perilous experiences, and was finally voted chief of the island, with power of life and death.
