Stock Description

One century ago, the lure of Klondike gold led thousands of fortune seekers over the majestic Chilkoot Pass, which rose a thousand meters from dockside in Alaska, to artic meadows on the shores of Lake Bennett in the Yukon. In this Raincoast Journeys book, experienced travel writer Frances Backhouse and acclaimed nature photographer Adrian Dorst team up to hike the arduous yet inspiring 50-kilometer trail, now a popular destination for ambitious ecotourists. Together they depict the route in all its beauty and reflect on its storied past.
