Sluicing on the HootalinquaSpecial Talk: Ho! for the Klondike

Join historian Kathy Gates as she takes you along on George Black’s remarkable journey to the Yukon in 1898. He was known as “The M.P. for the North Pole.” He rose to prominence as Speaker of the House of Commons, and he dominated Yukon Politics for half a century. But he got his start just like thousands of others during the Klondike Gold rush. His name was George Black.
