The Klondike Gold Rush Steamers – A History of Yukon River Steam Navigation

Robert Turner - Author/Photographer

Over 250 stern wheeled steamers ran on the Yukon River during the years of the gold rush. Robert will share with us the dramatic story of these amazing steamboats, the people who built and ran them and the services they gave to a vast, lonely, sometimes frenzied and always challenging frontier. Robert is a multi-award winning author who has authored 15 books and is the leading authority on BC transportation history. He is also curator emeritus at the RBCM.
