3 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the cry of "Gold!" echoed down from the Yukon in 1896, thousands of Americans heeded the call. Driven by equal measures of optimism and gullibility, they set off for the frozen gold fields north of the Arctic Circle. Tom Bodett describes how the city of Seattle was the real beneficiary of the Yukon Gold Rush and two other Alaskan gold strikes between 1896 and 1903. While $10 million in gold was dug out of the earth, Seattle's merchants and shipping industry realized a profit of $25 million in supplying and transporting the eager prospectors. Tom sets the scene in Seattle's Pioneer Square and Gold Rush Museum, then takes a side trip to the Boeing Aircraft Museum and Mt. Rainier National Park. Tom then sets sail for Puget Sound to follow the Inside Passage along the Alaskan coastline to Skagway where the tales and legends of the gold rush are preserved and commemorated. He also visits Juneau, native Tlingit artisans, Chilkoot Pass, Dead Horse Trail, Mendenhall Glacier, and the Treadwell Mine Ruins"--Container
