Contents: Long before Robert Service first set foot in the Yukon, Sam C. Dunham was the most famous poet in Alaska and was acclaimed as the unofficial poet laureate of Alaska.
Dunham first went to Alaska in 1897 as an investigator for the U.S. Department of Labor. Though his poetry is largely forgotten today, his official report on conditions in the Alaskan gold fields in 1897, which is reprinted here, is one of the classics in gold rush literature. Illustrated with photographs.
