The Pioneer Story Behind Mount McKinley National Park

Tom Walker

The Kantishna is rife with stories of courage, loyalty and challenges met head-on. Bouts with wild beasts, isolation, disease, accidents and cosmic cold. Here too are darker tales—of armed robbery, attempted murder, suicide and insanity. Market hunters slaughtered the wildlife. Unscrupulous trappers poisoned animals for their fur. Here are stories of these tough pioneers, tales similar to those that inspired Robert Service and Jack London—only these stories are true.
