"Thousands of miles from home, Klondike residents found the spirit of Christmas. Tales by adventurers, sourdoughs and famous writers such as Robert Service and Jack London capture the warmth of the holidays. Through a shared meal, new friends or carols sung at a midnight service, celebrations remained undiminished by cold and isolation. These letters, poems, newspaper articles, diary entries, and stories celebrate the amazing endurance of the men and women who followed their dreams of gold to the North. In the midst of hardship, they discovered the simple pleasures of the season."
