  Fool's Gold: “I went to Alaska in 1899, in my early twenties, and so qualify as an authentic pioneer, but unlike practically everybody else, I never was one of those fabled sourdoughs. I went to make money, sure; there was no other reason to go there. But I never was much for sloshing around in the ice and snow, looking for gold. My idea of making money in Alaska was to sit in a warm and cozy saloon – my saloon – and watch other people drink whiskey – my whiskey – and play a little cards on the side if the customers so desired”

Jed Jordan
