Book - Hiking with Ghosts. The Chilkoot Trail, Then and Now (used paperback, good condition)
One century ago, the lure of Klondike gold led thousands of fortune seekers over the majestic Chilkoot Pass, which rose a thousand metres from dockside in Alaska to arctic meadows on the shores of Lake Bennett in the Yukon. In this Raincoast Journeys book, experienced travel writer Frances Backhouse and acclaimed nature photographer Adrian Dorst team up to hike the arduous yet inspiring 50-kilometre trail, now a popular destination for ambitious ecotourists. Together they depict the route in all its beauty and reflect on its storied past.
