Gold in the Klondike!


COBBLESTONE Magazine March 2022. The discovery of gold led to a rush of gold seekers, who left their mark and helped settle a frozen frontier.

There’s gold in those hills! That was a rallying cry during the American Gold Rush and this edition of COBBLESTONE Magazine focuses specifically on the search for gold in Alaska and the Yukon.


The Gold Rush was a chance for men to make millions with a few shakes of a tray. Or so the fables went. Thousands of surveyors traveled thousands of millions to stake a claim of land and hope it proved worthwhile. They pushed from the west to the Northwest, into Yukon’s Klondike River. Read about their adventures, their discoveries, their mistakes, and how this scramble for gold helped shape, well, the shape of Northern American boundaries. Complete with authentic historic figures and photos, maps, illustrations, puzzles, and more, you’ll find this COBBLESTONE Magazine to be pure gold.
