The Spell of the Yukon . . .
It was Jack London who got me started. I was just a kid when I read "The Call of the Wild" and it sparked in me, an interest in the Yukon Territory and the period of the Gold Rush 0f 1898. Later when I read the poems of Robert Service that interest became magnified as I fell under his spell, and to this day I still am thrilled to read those poetic descriptions of an intriguing period, and a glorious land.
