Amazing photographs. The later photographs show sullen faces registering despair and disillusionment with the arduous journey to the gold fields. I would rate "The Klondike Quest" at 5.0 stars.

My only reservation is that there are only three photographs with steam paddlewheelers. During the Klondike Gold Rush, over 50 steam paddlewheelers served Dawson City. Some had palatial interiors.

Excellent photo essay that captures the hardships and adventures endured by those who risked their lives in the Klondike Gold Rush.
