Gary F. Kurutz bibliography on the Klondike and Alaska is extensive in entries and the summaries of the contents of many entries. This bibliography is a fitting "bookend" to Kurutz's 1997 'The California Gold Rush'. These bibliographies are important contributions to Western Americana and Alaskan history. This book is an essential reference to the collectors, researchers, librarians, and booksellers on Alaska and the Klondike histories.
