He hiked out to the claims on Bonanza and Eldorado, and he poked his camera into the banks and bars and bordellos in Dawson. He rode a paddle-wheel steamer down the Yukon to the Bering and was on the dark sands of the beach at Home when the prospectors swirled gravel in their pans and worked their mechanical rockers.

    If you're interested in the Klondike, this is an excellent book. Very readable.

    Follows the format of a chapter of text, then a bunch of photos. Covers Seattle to Skaygway/Dyea, the Yukon River, Dawson, and Nome. Gives a basic understanding of the time. Wouldn't be a bad intro to the Klondike, since the photos really help it along.
