Tales of the Valdez and Copper River Gold Rush
(by Addison Powell 1908 Abridged) Reprinted 1997
(240 pp, 5 maps and 27 photos)
Entertaining tales of the Valdez and Copper River gold rush by one of its most literate participants. In this work, Powell proves himself to be the perfect campfire companion. His stories and storytelling remind one of Mark Twain while his wit and sense of humor sometimes exceed the master's. Powell's humor captures life on the Alaskan frontier better than some of the more serious histories.
