There is a freemasonry among Klondikers which rules that no tales shall be told out of school. If, therefore, this were an historical novel, if I were telling tales and seeking to escape censure by the subterfuge of changing names, I could hardly succeed. Let me take the case of Poo-Bah, for instance. The reader with a knowledge of the early days of Dawson accepting the story as historical, would fix as the original any one of half a dozen men indecently caricatured. But if he is told the character is a composite one, that it is the personification of Dawson graft, or, in other words, that it is the sum of a merger, he will understand and, I think, make no complaint.--excerpted from the Preface.

Author Bio for Jarvis, W. H. P. (William Henry Pope)

W.H.P. (William Henry Pope) Jarvis (1876-1944) was a Canadian journalist and writer. He was born in 1876 in Summerside, Prince Edward Island. He worked as a journalist and spent time prospecting and mining in the Yukon and Alaska. He wrote three novels which reflect his time in the mining industry. His prose is heavy with the technical details of prospecting and the struggle to live in the wilderness. (Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature)
