240 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition but the dustjacket has some tears and soiling. AMERICAN WEST. The Klondike gold rush was perhaps the most photographed event in North America during the nineteenth century. More than ten thousand pictures are available in public archives and private collections, depicting every aspect of what Pierre Berton has called "one of the strangest mass movements in history." For this book, Berton has selected some two hundred photographs, most of them unfamiliar, many never before published. Here, for the first time, is the panoramic drama of the great stampede seen from the point of view of the ordinary gold seeker. A new text, written from a new point of view than Berton's earlier, classic work, The Klondike Fever, together with extended captions, accompanies the photographs. (Key Words: Gold Rush, Pierre Berton, Klondike, American West, Yukon River, Photography, Dawson, Canada).
