Annotation "The Klondike Gold Rush made the Yukon famous, but the rest of its long and diverse history attracts little attention. Placing the best-known historical episodes within the broader sweep of the past, the bestselling Land of the Midnight Sun is the standard source for understanding the Yukon's history. It has been completely revised and brought up to the present in this new edition." "Emphasizing the role of First Nations people and the lengthy struggle of Yukoners to find their place within Confederation, Ken Coates and William Morrison also explore the impressive Elka-Keno Hill silver mines, the impact of residential schools on Aboriginal children, the devastation caused by the sinking of the Princess Sophia, the Yukon's remarkable contributions to the Canadian World War I effort, and the sweeping transformations associated with the American "occupation" during World War II."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
