HAZELET'S JOURNAL: Travel edition


2023 NYC BBA Distinguished Favorite

Hazelet's Journal is a true story of the 1898 Gold Rush that gives us insight into the character of those who came before us. It is a story of passion, loyalty, and resilience, and it captures the spirit of adventure and discovery that was so much a part of the American experience. The book is written in the journalist's original voice, and it is full of vivid descriptions of the people and places of the Alaska Gold Rush. It is a must-read for anyone interested in American history or the spirit of adventure. The book also explores the rich history of the last true American frontier. It tells the story of the old Copper Center, a pioneer mail hub at the confluence of the Copper and Klutina Rivers. It also tells the story of the Kennecott Copper mines at McCarthy, Keystone Canyon with its beautiful waterfalls, and the famous "shootout" between warring railway companies in 1907. Hazelet's Journal is a fascinating and inspiring story that will transport you back in time to the Alaska Gold Rush. It is a must-read for anyone who loves history, adventure, or the American spirit.
