Gold Fever

Imagine it's 1897

You read that darn headline and Gold Fever has gripped you to the core of your very being.

From the e-book:

That Darn Newspaper Headline

The large words printed on the page screamed at you so loud you couldn't ignore them. You were unable to look away. They grabbed your mind like a mythical Greek Siren's wail and pulled you in. There it was in the 1897 edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper.

“GOLD! GOLD! GOLD! GOLD! Sixty-Eight Rich Men on the Steamer Portland. STACKS OF YELLOW METAL!”

You Quickly Board a Steam Ship

You sail to the rugged frontier town of Skagway, Alaska, the entrance to the Klondike gold fields.

You never imagined a place like this.

From the e-book:

Ticket in hand, it was finally your turn to board. You were suddenly crammed on to a steam ship with a bunch of other “stampeders” who were headed north to stake their claim. From the deck of the ship, you squeezed between two other men who were standing at the ship's railing to wave goodbye to Seattle. As you stood there, packed in like a sardine, looking back at the dock, your mind raced. What would the voyage be like?

Finally, in Skagway

From the e-book:

As you step off the dock, your still shaky legs sink halfway to your knee caps in Soggy mud. With each step, your cold, soaking wet and still, sea sick body is getting closer to the town of Skagway. Whipped by wind and rain, you keep saying to yourself, “don't fall in the mud. don't fall in the mud.”

Everywhere you look is like a bizarre carnival. People, animals, and wagons full of goods slogging through the mud in all directions. The crush of humanity in this small place is downright scary. But you haven't seen anything yet. The wind and the rain push you to walk closer to a couple of buildings to find a boardwalk, so you can get out of the mud. But the only thing you see are a few muddy planks here and there. Even so, there is no room to walk on them.

Soapy Smith Book

And you didn't count on a con man named Jefferson Randolph “Soapy” Smith and his gang of thugs and thieves.

If you survive the Klondike long enough to strike gold, you still have to get it past Soapy and his gang.

But Gold Fever rages on.

From the e-book:

An ominous warning rings in your ears. “Watch out for Jefferson Randolph “Soapy” Smith and his men.” That's what a fella told you over pancakes and coffee this morning.

You were also told that in Skagway, Soapy and his thugs and con men, strong-arm cheechakos and sourdoughs alike.

No one is safe.

“Gold Fever, Skagway and Soapy Smith”

You will experience the Klondike gold rush

Gold Rush Fever

Just reading about all the gold that filled the two steam ships sitting in the harbor that had returned from a far-away place known as the Klondike, was enough to make thousands give up everything for a chance to strike it rich.

They were quickly blinded by gold fever.

In their minds they could see only one thing… a vision of gold, just sitting there, waiting for them to pick it up. Riches beyond their wildest dreams. And the proof was anchored there in the harbor. Tons of gold.

Those first dreamers sold everything to scrape together enough money to book passage on a steamship headed for a place called Skagway, Alaska. From there, they would make their way to the gold fields. And in no time, they too would strike it rich.

But what would they really discover when they reach Skagway?

Of the thousands who made their way to this frontier outpost, only a very few would actually make it to the Klondike gold field. And only a very few would find gold. 

Hardship after hardship would slowly fade the strong call of gold fever, until all that was left was a desperate need to just… go back home.

When you read this exciting Soapy Smith Book, you'll experience Gold Fever, Skagway and Soapy Smith.
