August is the anniversary of the 1896 Klondike Gold Rush. Some may only know of the event through Jack London's tales and Robert W. Service's poetry. Here are books about the food, the people, the gold, and -- above all -- the adventure! True crime, food, romance, and even science fiction all inspired by the rough, perilous, and mysterious lives of prospectors and sourdoughs.
