Period Paper struck gold with an intriguing collection of images visually chronicling the life of master musher, Klondike Mike Mahoney, the great Irish Inuit of the arctic frontier! To Klondike Mike, Chilkoot pass was nothing more than a good place to carry a piano, while White Horse rapids was a swimming hole suitable for toddlers. Authors like Jack London and Robert Service, who defined adventure with their pens credited Klondike's exploits as the foundation for Gold Rush lore. Klondike Mike conquered the Yukon from the back of his dog sled, setting records, as he once covered 400 miles of frozen tundra in a mere 24 days despite being pursued by a ferocious pack of snarling wolves.
