Publisher's Summary

Gold fever swept the world in 1897. The chance for untold riches sent thousands of dreamers on a perilous trek toward their fortunes, failures, or deaths. Follow four English aristocrats and their Irish servant as they misguidedly haul their dreams across cruel Canadian terrain toward the Klondike gold fields.

McKeever was the best there ever was

Another great story from Mitch. But if you are reading Michener you don’t need this review.

A Michener short story.

If you enjoyed Michener's Alaska, you'll enjoy Journey as well. If you're wondering whether you'll enjoy Alaska, start with Journey.
