Praise

“. . . An eye-opening work, which is a natural companion for Jack London’s Call of the Wild and other historical-fiction works about the Klondike gold rush.” –Booklist

* “A remarkable collection of documents paints a picture of the Klondike gold rush in vivid detail. . . Adding only transitional paragraphs, the authors skillfully arrange these letters plus diary entries, telegrams and Pearce’s articles for the Denver Republican to convey the men’s story in compelling, first-person voices. The attractive design incorporates intriguing pull-out quotes, maps, posters, documents and many well-chosen, captioned photographs, including one of Jack London, who camped near Pearce and Bond’s cabin . . . an excellent companion to The Call of the Wild. A memorable adventure, told with great immediacy.” –Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“. . . this is excellent reading not only for interest, but also for support of the Common Core Standards as it is an excellent example of text complexity . . . ” –School Library Journal
