Great Tales of the Gold Rush 
Front Cover
Back Cover

  Great Tales of the Gold Rush: News of a gold strike on the Klondike River in the Yukon sparked thousands of people from all over the world to head north. People quit their jobs. Men left their wives. Women ran away from their husbands. All set off on the great stampede.

Writers too, joined the rush for gold. Tappan Adney, Jack London, Rex Beach, Joaquin Miller, and scores of others found their way north. Popular magazines and newspapers soon began publishing their stories for a public hungry for the adventure and romance of far-off Alaska and Yukon.

Great Tales of the Gold Rush brings together a sampling of the best of these stories. From realism to romance, from true-life adventure to droll reminiscence, from Jack London to Stroller White, this classic collection of northern tale-telling mines a rich vein in the literature of the north.
