    " An interesting and factual historical story of a facet of the Yukon gold rush.
    Reads like a novel in some spots. In others too much detail and a bit dry.
    Good read, if somewhat tedious.
    Blum is a good writer. "

    " We are told an excellent story about the Yukon Gold Rush as witnessed by three very different men. One man is a prospector, one is a criminal, and the last is a visiting Pinkerton detective doing his job. "
