Klondike Women

By: Mayer, Melanie J.
Price: $18.95

Swallow Press, 1989.
Klondike Women is a compelling collection of historical photographs and first-hand account of the adventures, challenges, and disappointments of women on the trails to the Klondike gold fields. In the midst of a depression near the turn of the twentieth century, these women dared to act on the American dream. As they journeyed through the Northwest wilderness, they explored and extended not only the physical frontiers of North America but also the social frontiers about the 'women's place.'
