From Kurutz, "... one of the finest accounts not only of the Alaska-Klondike excitement but of any gold rush. He describes his experiences and those of others in eloquent detail, and his narrative is punctuated by interviews and long quotations from other miners. The author concludes his observations and reflections on the historical impact of the Alaska-Klondike gold rush in California; comparisons with the Californian and Australian rushes; the interest of women in going to Alaska .... He advises that only the strong, well-supplied, an dwell-funded miner should go."

This book was from the library of the late Dr. G. Warren Smith of Pennsylvania. He had a long career as university professor and administrator, and was a collector of over 6,000 books, maps, illustrations, and artifacts relating to the Arctic, Alaska and Pacific Northwest.
