An omnibus of the best tales ever told about the Klondike and its characters.

The fourth and final book in the exciting Pierre Berton's History for Young Canadians series is The Great Klondike Gold Rush.

Canada's best-known writer, Pierre Berton, tells the stories of the prospectors, the gold seekers, and the unforgiving land and gold that drove them mad. The Great Klondike Gold Rush is the acclaimed six-book history of North America's last great gold rush. Originally printed as separate volumes in the Adventures in Canadian History series, the titles in this omnibus are Bonanza Gold, The Klondike Stampede, Trails of '98, City of Gold, Before the Gold Rush, and Kings of the Klondike.

"Because he grew up in Dawson City, Yukon, in the afterglow of the greatest gold rush this continent has ever known, no story was closer to Pierre Berton's heart than the one he tells in this volume.... Only a few men struck it rich in the Klondike Gold Rush. But nobody who survived the adventure ever forgot it. The same can be said of this book. If you read it, you will never forget it."
-- Ken McGoogan, author Lady Franklin's Revenge and winner of the 2006 Pierre Berton Award.

Foreword by Ken McGoogan, winner of the 2006 Pierre Berton Award.
