Skagway's Scourge of the KlondikeBook - 2005
In 1897, the Klondike Gold Rush brought thousands of hopeful prospectors to the North. With them came many scoundrels and swindlers who were willing to do whatever it took to separate unsuspecting targets from their hard-earned cash. No swindler was more successful at his craft than Jefferson Randolph Soapy Smith, who ruled Skagway, Alaska, with a quick hand and a scheming mind. This book explores his most outrageous escapades.
