it was amazing

After reading this book I hiked the Chilkoot Trail from Dyea Flats, near Skagway, into British Columbia along the exact route of the gold seekers of 1898. There were abandoned items all along the way. I doubt it has changed much in one hundred years. It was exhausting and exhilerating simultaneously. Made it to Lake Bennet and took a tourist train back to Skagway.
This book contains some of the most stirring and also the most troubling events I have ever read about. Thoroughly researched, as always. Great book.
