    • This book contains short biographies of women who participated in the Alaskan gold rush around the turn of the century. I always loved stories of Baby Doe Tabor and Molly Brown when I was a kid, so I thought this would be similar. But these women are a little different. There are a few nice stories in this book, but most of the women's lives follow one of these templates:1. Woman goes to Alaska with gold-mining husband, works incredibly hard to survive for a couple of years, gets abandoned by hu [...]


    • This book gives information about the lives of women, including Native American and African American women, who were involved in the gold rush. I really enjoyed this book. The tidbits of information regarding the personal lives of these women were very interesting. Favorite Quotes:“’A change had come over Mother. I could sense it even then, at the age of five.

    • Several years ago I went on a trip to Alaska and came across this book in the museum at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I regretted not purchasing it, but I finally got around to obtaining a copy from the library. An interesting read about a variety of women who braved brutal conditions to seek their fortunes and/or new lives in Alaska and the Yukon. (Not something I wold have ever aspired to, BTW.)


    • A short paperback which provides short biographies of women who were part of the Alaskan Gold Rush. While several of the women were adventurous non-native wealth seekers many were native Americans. Like the significant others of early trappers and explorers they are often forgotten or ignored. Several of the women were abandoned by their 'mates' and native Americans apparently were not allowed to stake claims, thus assuring white males most of the benefits from the gold mines.


    • Nice YA type reading about some of the courageous and hearty women who braved the wilderness during the various Alaskan Gold Rush waves. Good research, good writing and some terrific photos. Quite enjoyable.



    • Reading books about this time in history, one without modern conveniences, is amazing. Our lives our so easy now. Great book.


    • I love reading historical accounts of courageous women in times when a woman was very out of place for doing so.
