In the late 19th century, gold was discovered along the Klondike River near Dawson City, Yukon, Canada. The discovery kicked off a frenzy of immigration to the area by would be gold diggers. This handy manual, published by the Chicago Record in 1897, contained "every known practical and contemplated route to all the gold fields in the north . . . comprehensively and minutely described, with maps and tables of distances which are absolutely reliable. Everything which a gold- seeker should know that can be placed in type is contained in this book." (From the preface)
