Gold rush voyage inspires new book by Mr. Whitekeys
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - The discovery of historic photos led one Anchorage man to write about a riverboat’s voyage to the Klondike Gold Rush.
Anchorage humorist and musician Mr. Whitekeys learned his friend’s grandfather carried a camera on an expedition from Chicago to Alaska’s Interior — and the glass slides of those photos were in a wooden box in his friend’s basement.
Whitekeys knew the history in that box had to be shared. Using diaries and a written account of the trip, he organized the photos and information into “The Voyage of the Alaska Union,” an account of the Klondike Gold Rush not written about before.
