Into the Yukon

Cincinnati: Robert Clarke Company, 1905.

Hardcover. Fine. Second edition. 335 pp, with many illustrations from photographs and 2 maps. Ribbed blue cloth with titles stamped in gilt; totem pole illustration in white, top edge gilt. A lovely copy, clean and tight, with very mild wear to the spine ends. The author and his wife, natives of West Virginia, traveled to Dawson via the Canadian Pacific Railway, steamboat from Victoria to Skagway, and the upper Yukon route in the summer of 1902. The photos and text offer interesting documentation of life in the mining camps as well as the more permanent settlements. On the return, they explored California, Arizona, and Colorado, and there are nice photos from this part of the trip as well. Tourville 1415; Wickersham 3914.
