"I blazed through this terrific book in one sitting. Lively and well designed, with previously unseen archival photos, it is both an affectionate family memoir and a well-researched history of the Yukon Gold Rush, including the crucial role played by Indigenous Peoples."

- Michael Gates, Yukon's first Story Laureate; author of seven Yukon history books including Hollywood in the Klondike; former curator of collections, Klondike National Historic Sites "Tales of an Unsung Sourdough is simply epic! Readers will love this book for its stories, history, and photos--and they will love Johnny Lind. Through his eyes, we see the people, places, and history of the Klondike Gold Rush. Hollywood producers need to read this book for their next motion picture opportunity."
