This is also an historic section of the river because of the Klondike gold rush of 1897-99 and the 50-year steamboat era that followed. Archie Satterfield has traveled this stretch of wild-river several times and has written extensively about the river and the gold rush in other books, particularly Chilkoot Pass, and numerous magazine articles. Exploring the Yukon River is illustrated with historic and modern photos, plus sketch maps to guide travelers along this beautiful and historic waterway.
