Abstract:

Put history on the move with this inside look at the remarkable chronicles and fascinating lore of Alaska and the Yukon Territory. With maps and photographs accompanying the text, author Ted Stone retraces the route of the original Gold Rush trails from Skagway to Dawson City, then follows the Alaska Highway, built originally by the American military during World War II, from Dawson Creek, British Columbia to Delta, Alaska. Along the way readers meet fur traders and trappers, dreamers and dance-hall girls, stampeders and saloon keepers -- all whose wanderlust helped shape the history of this continent's great northland.
