No. 20043528Pierre Berton’s 1985 book tells the story of the explorers and dreamers who braved mountainous terrain and a brutal climate to seek their fortune on America’s wild Northern frontier. Between 1897 and 1899, the Klondike Gold Rush drew an estimated 100,000 adventurers—and inspired the founding of Filson, set up in the last-chance outpost of Seattle, to outfit them on their journey. Berton’s incomparable collection of 200 photographs represents the finest collection ever amassed of what he calls “the most photographed event in America during the 19th century.”
