Jeremiah Lynch was a businessman (and former San Francisco politician) who went to the Klondike in 1898, two years after gold was discovered.

He describes his three years in and around Dawson City as a miner and a merchant. His narrative is an articulate and highly colorful observation of the characters and the social environment of gold rush Dawson. The town is the real protagonist in this story. Fans of Northern Exposure will understand.
