Canada's Yukon is one the world's last great wildernesses, where bears, moose and caribou roam. It's a place where hikers, paddlers, skiers and mushers can travel for days without seeing another human soul, where the northern lights dance green and red across starry skies, and where glaciers tumble, mountain peaks soar, and tundra shrubs scream scarlet as summer turns to fall. Bradt's Yukon is the only guidebook dedicated to this natural and historical wonderland. Offering practical advice on everything from where to pan for gold to how to avoid being eaten by a bear, alongside quirky anecdotes (such as the story behind the 'sourtoe cocktail' - a shot of whisky garnished with a severed human toe), it's the perfect companion for highway drivers, cruise-ship passengers, and outdoors enthusiasts alike.

Covering vast distances in time and space, Yukon: The Last Frontier begins with the early Russian fur trade on the Aleutian Islands and closes with what Melody Webb calls 'the technological frontier'. Colourful and impeccably researched, her history of the Yukon Basin of Canada and Alaska shows how much and how little has changed there in the last two centuries. Successive waves of traders, trappers, miners, explorers, soldiers, missionaries, settlers, steamboat pilots, road builders, and aviators have come to the Yukon, bringing economic and social changes, but the immense land 'remains virtually untouched by permanent intrusions.'

In this remarkable collection of photographs, Fritz Mueller captures fleeting, compelling moments in a timeless Yukon landscape, one of the world's wildest and most overlooked wilderness areas. The view through Mueller's lens is influenced by his scientific roots and inspired by his visual artist's aesthetic. Mueller takes readers on the annual migration of the Porcupine caribou herd, and he captures intimate portraits of icy grizzly bears gorging on salmon at the Arctic Circle. Mueller crosses sprawling glaciers and navigate Yukon's clear mountain rivers. His appreciation for nature's minutiae -- voles, berries, frogs -- is a refreshing perspective on a landscape writ large. Complemented by evocative text by Teresa Earle, this book is a celebration of all things wild, from vivid northern lights to enchanting landscapes to elusive wildlife. As wilderness vanishes and intact ecosystems deteriorate, the Yukon remains one of the last wild hot spots, a conservation treasure of international significance.

So, why'd they call him Jack? Born Leroy Napoleon McQuesten, this Yukon legend was given the moniker of "Captain Jack" after his heroic rescue of ship and crew, on his first trip out on salt water, at the age of 22. A magnet for nicknames, he became known as Father of the Yukon, Father of Alaska, Golden Rule McQuesten, Prince of Goodfellows and a host of other affectionate titles. Famous authors, Jack London and Pierre Berton, were fans of Captain Jack and wrote extensively on him. Early Yukon explorers, Frederick Schwatka and William Ogilvie, did the same. Though captain of the very first steamboats on the Yukon, chief trader on the river, and grubstaker of thousands of gold miners, Jack's story has lain hidden in the pages of several dozen books and newspapers, until now. "Captain Jack: Father of the Yukon" is the definitive work on this true American hero and his adventures in the final frontier.

The Yukon is a land of remarkable wilderness, diverse ecosystems, and profound beauty. It is also home to a unique assemblage of birds. As of 2002, 288 bird species have been documented in the Yukon, with 223 occurring regularly. They occupy an amazing range of habitats, from the most barren mountain peaks to lush valley bottom forests, and are an integral part of the cultural heritage of Yukon First Nations people. The vast areas of natural habitat with limited road access can make the study of birds challenging, but are key in defining the nature of birding in the Yukon. Birds of the Yukon Territory is the result of a decade-long project initiated to gather and share what is known about the Yukon's birdlife. Lavishly illustrated with 600 colour photographs and 223 hand-drawn bird illustrations, the book presents a wealth of information on bird distribution, migration and breeding chronology, nesting behaviour, and habitat use, and on conservation concerns. Two hundred and eighty-eight species of birds are documented, including 223 regular species, and 65 casual and accidental species. In compiling this meticulously researched volume, the authors consulted over 166,000 records in a database created by the Canadian Wildlife Service, with information dating back to 1861. S ections on birds in Aboriginal culture and history, and bird names in the Yukon First Nations and Inuvialuit languages, enhance the book, as do the numerous easily interpreted charts and graphs. Destined to become a basic reference work on the avifauna of the North, Birds of the Yukon Territory is a must-have for bird enthusiasts and anyone interested in the natural history of the Yukon and the North.

Who were the first people who came to the land bridge joining northeastern Asia to Alaska and the northwest of North America? Where did they come from? How did they organize technology, especially in the context of settlement behavior? During the Pleistocene era, the people now known as Beringians dispersed across the varied landscapes of late-glacial northeast Asia and northwest North America. The twenty chapters gathered in this volume explore, in addition to the questions posed above, how Beringians adapted in response to climate and environmental changes. They share a focus on the significance of the modern-human inhabitants of the region. By examining and analyzing lithic artifacts, geoarchaeological evidence, zooarchaeological data, and archaeological features, these studies offer important interpretations of the variability to be found in the early material culture the first Beringians. The scholars contributing to this work consider the region from Lake Baikal in the west to southern British Columbia in the east. Through a technological-organization approach, this volume permits investigation of the evolutionary process of adaptation as well as the historical processes of migration and cultural transmission. The result is a closer understanding of how humans adapted to the diverse and unique conditions of the late Pleistocene.

Klondike lore is full of accounts of the exploits of Dangerous Dan McGrew, Sergeant Preston of the Mounted, and the Mad Trapper of Rat River. The stories vary from outright fabrications to northern fantasies and, on occasion, real-life accounts. Strange Things Done investigates a series of murders in the pre-World War II Yukon, exploring the boundaries between myths and historical events. The book seeks to understand both the specific events, carefully reconstructed from court evidence and police records, and the broader social and cultural context within which these violent deaths occurred. The murder case studies provide a unique and penetrating perspective on key aspects of Yukon history, such as Native-newcomer relations, mental illness and the folklore about cabin fever, the role of immigrants in northern society, violence in the gold fields, and the role of the police and courts in regulating social behaviour. The investigation of these capital cases also illustrates the fear and paranoia which gripped the territory in the aftermath of a murder, and the societys insistence on quick and retributive justice when offenders were caught and convicted. The Yukon experienced fewer murders than popular literature would suggest, and fewer than most would expect given the region's intense and dramatic history, but those that did occur illustrate the passions, frustrations, angers and human frailties that are present in all societies. The manner in which the murders occurred and the way in which Yukoners reacted also reveals specific and important aspects of territorial society.

In 1962 I had just been released from active duty as a US Marine helicopter pilot and had no idea what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, but had planned from the very beginning to make the most of my mandatory armed services draft obligation so that I would at least have the qualifications and experience of being a commercial pilot as one means to earn a living. The most interesting job offer which would utilize my training as a pilot came from Klondike Helicopters of Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory. Despite my very excellent and thorough training in the Navy and Marines, bush flying turned out to be dramatically different and more challenging. The high costs of commercial helicopter operations demanded that the pilot make daily judgments crucial to the safety of not only the machine but also its occupants. And then there was the total unpredicability and rapid changeability of weather conditions in mountains and above the Arctic Circle. I was fortunate enough to be one of two pilots and two helicopters on a project whose purpose was to map the stratigraphy of the entire northern half of the Yukon Territory. This took me over nearly every square mile of the northern Yukon at a time when it was still a relatively untouched frontier. It was most certainly an opportunity of a lifetime, covered here with color photos and stories from legendary bush pilot, Pat Callison, owner of Klondike Helicopters.
