CAMPEAU’S DAY OF RECKONING

It was one of the most important days in Robert Campeau’s long and tumultuous career.

Tales from the land of Dan McGrew

There is something about gold, Robert Service told us, that drives men mad. I don’t think it’s the gold, actually. I think it’s the North. The Yukon, the Klondike. Once under its spell, normal blokes grow a little goofy. Not just in 1897, but even today.
