This book took a few chapters to get moving, but once the adventure took over I found myself caught up in the Yukon. Very descriptive of the time and people that characterized the Yukon gold rush. It made me want to revisit London’s writings. Of course there were adventures in these pages different trom those familiar ones. These were fantastic! What a fun story of a boy on a journey of discovery.
