Rate this:
Attracting tens of thousands of men and women hoping to strike it rich, the Klondike gold rush brought with it a frenzy of activity unlike anything the world had ever seen. The few children who lived in Dawson City and its surrounding mining camps had front-row seats to this treasure hunt of the century-and to all the antics that a lust for gold brought with it. In this, her companion book to the bestselling Women of the Klondike, Frances Backhouse explores the experiences of the children who followed their parents north in search of fortune or were born in the goldfields. With anecdotes that range from humorous to heartbreaking, Children of the Klondike paints a detailed picture of what it was like to grow up in a rough yet cosmopolitan northern frontier community populated by lucky millionaires, down-and-out dreamers, scarlet women, and a few adventurous families.
