Description

Many would come to the Yukon with gold-plated dreams; few would cash in without first selling their souls. Welcome to Skagway, just another rough-and-tumble frontier town nestled in the unforgiving landscape of the Alaska Territory. In the twilight of the 19th century, settlers arrive at its shores almost every day seeking fortunes and a new life. Among the newcomers are the rugged Jim Wade and his demure companion Jerri Sloan. The two have traveled from Seattle intent on finding the truth behind the disappearance of Jerri's father and the land claim he staked in the Yukon. But when Wade is greeted in town by a punch in the face a full fleecing, they quickly discover Skagway isn't a town that takes kindly to strangers. Salty Smith, criminal king pin of Skagway, and Marshall Stonesifer are keen to keep the Yukon for themselves and the fate of Jerri's father under wraps. Ever the hard-headed cowboy, Jim Wade is preparing for a show-down you won't want to miss. A classic tale of the frontier written for the modern reader, Skagway takes you to the heart of a town where men's hearts are as cold as the Alaska winds and danger lurks in every shadow. In a story filled with secrets, schemes, romance and adventure, you'll find Skagway a tough place to live in, and an even tougher book to leave.show more
