Alaska and Its Resources
Lee and Shepard, 1870 - 627 psl.
William Healey Dall presents this survey of the Alaskan interior. Although Dall was a naturalist primarily concerned with the research of mollusks, he was one of the first scientists to venture through the Alaskan wild. With the unofficial start of the Klondike Gold Rush beginning in the 1890s, this text would have been considered a practical handbook for the thousands of miners who journeyed north searching for gold.
