Episode 60: Yukon Author Michael Gates

Our special guest is author and historian Michael Gates. Michael was one of our guests on Episode 23: Rediscovering Tagish Post about the 1898 gold rush stop for miners passing through Tagish on their way to Dawson City. Michael read an excerpt from his book History Hunting in the Yukon.

Michael is back to read from his latest book, Dalton’s Gold Rush Trail, Exploring the Route of the Klondike Cattle Drives which will be available in May. Jack Dalton was known as a hard driving entrepreneur and adventurer, who established a toll booth on a trail he’d stolen from local First Nations people who had used it for centuries.
