A Journey Into History

There were four Tagish Indians and a prospector from
California present at the big strike at Bonanza Creek. Their photos and even a
voice recording, still survive and form a unique part of Klondike Gold. Since

was "Kaa Goox". Their fascinating story is one of many surprises to be found

The Voice of Robert W.
The era was encapsulated and immortalized by the poet,
Robert W. Service. Klondike Gold contains a rare recording of the acknowledged
bard of the Yukon reciting his most famous work, "The Cremation of Sam McGee",
as well as an equally rare radio interview.
