Skagways' past as a rip-roaring gold rush town is captured in The Skagway Story. This intriguing little book is just like a scrapbook, filled with photographs from dusty trunks in attics, recollections from pioneers who were there, and memorabilia of long-buried local residents. Learn about the glory days of Skagway, known as the Gateway to the Klondike--the discovery of the Klondike goldfields in 1896, the ordeal of the stampeders trudging over the grueling Chilkoot Pass in the winter of 1897, the 1898 shootout between con man Soapy Smith and city official Frank Reid, the completion of the narrow-guage White Pass & Yukon Route railroad in 1900, and other milestones in the history of the North's most famous bonanza.
