A close look at the year London spent in the Yukon trying to make his fortune in the gold fields. The details point out the grueling nature of his time there but also the experiences that helped shape future writings (another way to make a fortune). Photographs are mixed with Minor's black and white drawings to accentuate the details of the text. A timeline covers the major events of London's entire life and the book looks back on what experiences brought London to Alaska. This book has everything, a great book for biography, a great adventure story and a close up look at a major period in American History. Edie Ching (10-14)
