Klondike photos

I haven’t been to the Yukon since I was fourteen, and so have no
photographs of my own.

Eric Hegg photos

Eric Hegg used glass plate photography to take hundreds of photos of the stampede, and his is one of the best visual records we have of that time and place.  I modeled my photographer character on him, and these photos depict various locations in True Gold.  Click on the link below to learn more about him and see the photos.
