A Wild Yukon Adventure

Book - 2004
Rate this:

A young man's two-year adventure in Canada's fabled land of the Klondike Gold Rush -- to finance his studies. This challenge becomes as much a right of passage, as a means to an end. His office work at the Millewaye Construction Company does not fill his idle hours.

As he learns to cope with the extremes of temperature which frequently dip to 55+ below zero, he called upon to play many roles, wear many hats, in the little town of Whitehorse -- for many a refuge from a shady past.

He enters into the life of this rugged community with youthful if unwise enthusiasm. He merges with a unique and varied cast of characters and becomes emotionally involved; yet while sometimes carried away by their excesses and tragedies, he always respects his obligations and struggles to maintain his dream.
