Sourdough Stories

Sourdough Stories:
Fascinating Stories of the pioneers who changed Yukon history

The Klondike Gold Rush attracted thousands of adventurers to Canada’s Yukon between 1897 and 1899. Some of these pioneers made their mark on the region and left to follow the lure of gold to other places, but many stayed to build their families and help Yukon grow into the thriving territory it is today. From the traders and surveyors who first mapped the Yukon region to famed dancehall girl Klondike Kate who kicked up her heels to the delight of miners in Dawson City, Sourdough Stories follows the lives of more than 40 of these remarkable people.This book features information and photographs from MacBride’s collection and archive.

PRICE: $15
