"Few epochs in history continue to thrill imagination as does the discovery of gold in the Klondike. More than half a century has passed since Kate Carmack reached a slim brown hand into the water of Rabbit Creek and picked up nuggetsfrom the bottorn of the stream. Gold, Klondike gold, magic gold; which lay like chicken feed along the surface of a creek bed! Overnight, Rabbit Cree k became the new Bonanza. Across the great North, down the Pacific Coast, around the globe, the news touched the land with electric fingers. Whereuponsome three hundred thousand took up the stampede cry, "Klondike or bust," and turned quick steps toward the North, hoping to retrieve that which the panic of 1893 had so ruthlessly swept from them. Not everyone went for gold, as such. Among these was. an unassuming young photographer, E. A. Hegg, whose zeal for taking pictures was limited only by the short-light days. Also, among the stampeders was a five-year-old girl whose memory and capacity for research have enabled her to correlate the historical data with the remarkable pictorial story which Photographer Hegg left to us. This volume, Klondike '98, presents an unforgettable story of that gold rush which opened the door to the Great North." (from the dj).
