Moving to the Klondike in search for gold had benefits and disadvantages. You could get gold and become rich, but you could also find nothing, and you would be cold. It is also dangerous living there. It is very cold and it snows a lot. You would be lucky to get any sleep because if the snow falls on you, you could die. Some people want to become rich so they go to the Klondike for gold. There are some benefits like becoming rich or getting some money. You also get to spend a lot of time in nature. If you like being in the cold weather, then that is another benefit of going. There are a lot of disadvantages too. You would have to be in the cold, and getting there is pretty difficult. It is also pretty dangerous in the Klondike. If a lot
Walt was born a thousand miles or so down the Yukon, in a trading-post
below the Ramparts. After his mother died, his father and he came on up the
river, step by step, from camp to camp, till now they are settled down on the
Mazy May Creek in the Klondike country. Last year they and several others
had spent much toil and time on the Mazy May, and endured great
hardships; the creek, in turn, was just beginning to show up its richness and
to reward them for their heavy labor. But with the news of….
There are several examples of how informational text structures help us understand and make inferences about life in the Klondike during the gold rush.
One example is the use of sequential order in organizing the text. For instance, the text is ordered chronologically, "I was awakened at 1 o'clock in the morning by my partner ... We staked by candle light and started home, arriving at Dawson about 9 a.m., having made about 30 miles since 2 o'clock in the morning." This shows that Pearce had awoken….
mining history. Mining has continued to be the cornerstone of the Yukon economy from the famous Klondike gold rush of 1896/98 to the present day, although the territory has experienced several "boom-and-bust" cycles as metal prices have risen and fallen over the years.
The Yukon is divided into four mining districts with respective Mining Recorders in Watson Lake, Whitehorse, Mayo and Dawson City.
The Klondike Gold rush started off by the discovery of placer gold on Rabbit creek in 1896. The effect on….
The Unfulfilled Dream at Klondike
Klondike Gold Rush, which is also known as Yukon Gold Rush, was one of the world’s most influential impacts of the discovery of gold. The rush started by the accidental discovery of a gold placer in Rabbit Creek, Yukon, by a man named Skookum Jim Mason and his brother in law, George Carmack, in 1896 (Klondike Gold Rush). The news of the gold finding spread through the Yukon River valley and eventually reached the United States in 1897. At that time, the United….

The Klondike Gold Rush contributed a
lot towards Canada's economy. It
brought over 22 million dollars into our
economy which is over a billion dollars
today. It also brought many people to
Canada increasing its population, as it
did to Dawson, Vancouver's and
Edmonton's population. The gold rush
also largely contributed towards Yukon's
confederation in June 13, 1898. The gold
rush also helped us expand by bringing
and the Klondike to find gold so they could get rich. Almost 100,00 people went looking, the way they got the gold was by walking up the golden staircase. I would not go to the Klondike because I don’t have that much survival skills and i wouldn’t be able to be in the cold weather. Also I would rather just stay at home and relax until whom I will be living with comes home with gold. In conclusion, I think I will not be a good choice to go to the Klondike because….
It’s been a pretty long time since Father left to that ‘Klondike Gold Rush’ and it was time that Father should be back. I went to go find Mother and saw her crying and I knew that she cared very much about Father’s safety but the fact that she started crying during the middle of this month till now, got me wondering what happened. I wanted to ask Mother ‘Did Father got stuck in a storm?’ or ‘Did Father got badly injured?’ but I didn’t want to make Mother more depressed as she is now.….
very last second until they die. Back then they didn’t have cars or any type of vehicle so they walked and when they got to Alaska or the Yukon they had to walk up the “ golden staircase”. Over 100,000 people went to Alaska.
I would go to the Klondike because I could have a chance to find 1 billion dollars. The reason why I would go is because I would rather have a chance….
historical events that happened during the Klondike gold rush. The story became more
interesting to read because of its historical connection. The illustrator also did a great job on the
visual images that represent the main characters and the main events of the story.
5. I understand the historical version of the story much better than this story. The story of
Klondike gold rush between 1896 to 1899 brought 100,000 people to the Klondike region of
northwestern Canada in the Yukon region….
The Klondike Gold Rush was a time of fortune and misery. Some who were lucky brought gold home and some didn't even get to the gold because they got lost on their way. In the this piece the author stated that’ “Most stampeders knew little or nothing about where they were going, so pamphlets were available to help them on their way. Many of the pamphlets contained little or no real information and made outrageous claims of wealth” (paragraph 2). This quote explains that the miners just went to find….
