  In 1897-1898, countless thousands of stampeders crossed the Chilkoot Pass on their way to the Klondike goldfields. At no other time or place in recorded history did so many people voluntarily subject themselves to so much agony, misery, death, and glory. Archie Satterfield’s Chilkoot Pass is at once a fresh historical account of this unique era, plus an authoritative guide to preparing for the hiking “the meanest 32 miles in history.” Satterfield, an experienced hike and outdoorsman, has written more than 20 books. He’s made several trips over the Chilkoot and down the Yukon River. Photos.

The Chilkoot Pass is indeed the most famous trail in the North, and Archie Satterfield has written a unique book that is ideal for both hikers and armchair travelers. This revised edition with current trail updates is history, adventure, and an excellent guide to the Klondike Gold Rush National Park all in one. The Chilkoot Trail has been called the “meanest thirty-two miles in history” and the history detailed in this book will corroborate that and also why, hikers, travelers, and students today call it the “most beautiful thirty-two miles in Alaska and British Columbia.”
