by: Charles Margeson (1899)
Experiences of Gold Hunters in Alaska
Charles Margeson's work is a rare book on two accounts. First, most of the original copies were destroyed in a warehouse fire soon after publication. Secondly, it is a first-rate narrative of a real-life Alaskan adventure and the definitive account of the Valdez and Copper River phase of the great Klondike Gold Rush of 1898. In these pages, Margeson vividly describes the events that led to the development and exploration of much of central Alaska.
