Alaska Gold Rush: True Stories Told By The People Who Were There is a unique collection of 12 stories -- the best ones we could find -- torn from the pages of gold rush-era newspapers. These are great gold rush stories such as "Rush Into New Fields" and "Miners Fleeced by the Mounted Police" that focus on the real trials and tribulations of novice gold miners in a harsh land. Some of the stories are about famous gold rush bandits and murderers, such as "End of Soapy Smith -- Bad Man." And some of the stories feature the relatively few who actually struck it rich, like "Alaska Has Big Prizes for the Winners."

This 12,700 word book features 24 graphics ranging from reproductions of story headlines set in the original font, to engravings of the miners and the ships they traveled on. In addition there is a liberal sprinkling of exact reproductions of wonderful old contemporary newspaper advertisements of the times.
