Story Summary

It would be hard to imagine any kid not falling in love with history if they had a steady diet of articles like Mr. Blackwood's history of the Klondike Gold Rush. In five packed pages he brings alive the strike, the insanity, and the disappointing failure experienced by the vast majority of gold seekers.
