Product Overview

After nearly a century, Mollie Brackett's photo album mysteriously resurfaced in the trunk of a repossessed car in California. Her engaging amateur snapshots depict life in Skagway, Alaska, in the gold fields of Atlin, B.C., and on the infamous White Pass Trail at a time when her father-in-law, George A. Brackett, was attempting to recoup his lost fortune with ventures in transportation and mining. George's great-granddaughter, Cynthia Brackett Driscoll, pieces together Gold Rush history and family life in a compelling way that reveals the human side of this incredible 19th century enterprise.
