    " Journey, Michener's novel about four English nobelmen and one Irish peasant seeking adventure and fortune during the gold rush of 1897 was very surprising and brutal. Sure, any school boy has heard of the gold rush but I'm more than certain that most people have no idea what it took to get to the Yukon. This journal took more than two years to get there. It is remarkable because image being couped up from October to June (8 months) in a shelter that you had to build yourself because of the weather conditions in the McKenzie basin. Twice before you got to the destination. Then, there is no guarantee that you'll be successful in finding gold! They were a better sort of man than I. "
