"Tappan Adney was a writer and illustrator for Harpers Weekly when the gold rush occured, and it was his assignment to follow the most unusual mass migration of the 19th century, and chronicle the event for Harper's readers. Combining his journalistic eye for detail and human interest with his skill for writing he produced the most powerful first-hand account of the gold rush. His book "Klondike Stampede" is a classic that remains in print today."-pbs.
