Man of Mystery Who Set Off the Klondike Gold Rush
George Carmack made an announcement in August 1896 that started a gold stampede, one that led more than a half million men to the Klondike--he spoke of his big strike on Bonanza Creek. Here is the inside story leading up to Carmack's big discovery and his lifelong quest for gold, that remained with him long after he left Alaska and the Yukon.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: The late James "Al" Johnson literally stumbled over an apple box full of George Carmack's letters in the loft of a used bookstore. His amazing discovery inspired Johnson to take writing courses while conducting further reseach on Carmack. Thirty years later he published this biography of George Carmack.
