Klondike Gold Rush - Uniquely Yukon
The Klondike Gold Rush was a migration by an estimated 100,000 prospectors to the Klondike region of the Yukon in north-western Canada between 1896 and 1899. Gold was discovered there by local miners and, when news reached Seattle and San Francisco the following year, it triggered a stampede of prospectors.
