Description:

A young Britisher, Lawrence Fitzmaurice, decides to go to the Dawson Creek/Klondike gold rush. He gets there, but his entire outfit is stolen. With no money or supplies, he signs on with the local R.N.W.M.P. detachment, and matters proceed from there. "Mr. Charles Harrison Gibbons knows his Klondyke well, and in this volume he has given of his best... There is a hero, of course, straight from England, and unused to the ways of the country, who makes good, however, in the Mounted Police; a heroine from the States, a kindly old Jew, and lots of villains and rough characters. But the tale depends less on the plot than on the detailed description of life and manners in a mining camp." (The World's News (Sydney, Australia), 29 November 1924) [Suggest a different description.]
