In this riveting, true, action-packed middle-grade historical adventure, two friends rush with thousands of other prospectors heading north to claim their riches in the Klondike goldfields.
Marshall Bond and Stanley Pearce journeyed north in the late 1800s to stake their claim in the Klondike goldfields. The two friends book passage on a northbound steamship, haul a year’s worth of supplies over steep mountain passes, and navigate 500 miles of treacherous lakes and rivers to reach their destination. This expedition is life threatening, but they make it to Dawson City, in Canada, build a cabin, and meet another young prospector, Jack London–all the while searching for the ultimate reward: gold! Co-written by a great-newphew of Staney Pearce, this book includes their telegrams, diaries, and letters, as well as newspaper articles and photographs. An author’s note, timeline, bibliography, and further resources encourage readers to dig deeper into the Gold Rush era.
