One of the premier novelists of the twentieth century, James A. Michener captures a frenzied time when sane men and women risked their very lives in a forbidding Arctic land to win a dazzling and elusive prize: Yukon gold. In 1897 gold fever sweeps the world. The promise of untold riches lures thousands of dreamers from all walks of life on a perilous trek toward fortune, failure—or death.

Journey is an immersive account of the adventures of four English aristocrats and their Irish servant as they haul across cruel Canadian terrain toward the Klondike gold fields. Vivid and sweeping, featuring Michener’s probing insights into the follies and grandeur of the human spirit, thisis the kind of novel only he could write.

    " 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. "
