In the Footsteps of the Yukon Bard – A Book Review

October 6, 2021

Author, poet, journalist and raconteur Jim Christy takes us North

Jim Christy, Rough Road to the North: A Vagabond on the Great Northern Highway (Port Townsend, WA: Feral House, 1980, 2019) reissued edition, $17.95,181 pages plus photos, paper.

There are strange things done in the midnight sun/ By the men who moil for gold

Robert Service penned those words behind the desk of his Bank of Commerce desk at Dawson City in the late 1890s and you can almost hear a similar poetic charm coming through the clatter of Jim Christy’s prolific typewriter as he travels in the footsteps of the Yukon Bard.
