A well written book that deals with the stories of the often neglected women of the Klondike. Backhouse clearly shows the significant role played by such women as nurses, doctors, teachers, nuns and other professions. Perhaps longer stories could have been provided about some of these women to make the stories somewhat more detailed, informative and thereby even more interesting. But still a good but simple read.

Excellent tales of women who 'took on the Klondike'. The author does an impressive job of relating history without getting wordy and drawn out.
