The Spell of tl
There's a land where the mountains are nameless,
And the rivers all run God knows where;
There are lives that are erring and aimless,
And death that just hangs by a hair;
There are hardships that nobody reckons
There are valleys unpeopled and still;
There's a land—oh, it beckons and beckons,
And I want to go back—and I will. A
-^c-

iyond the lure of gold
. . . beyond the poetry of its history—you will find the spell of the Yukon. It is a spell, which
if you have ever yearned to adventure over the fringe of civilization, you cannot escape
in this timeless unchanging land.
Once your plane lands at Whitehorse, you leave today behind io board that extraordinary
paddle-wheel steamer, the "Klondike".  This is a younger generation of the riverboais which
carried the gold-hungry, the defeated and the expectant during the turbulent seasons of 1898
and 1899. Aboard it, you ply through a wilderness of waters into the natural wonders of this
magnificent country . . . past shining mountain peaks and rugged cliffs ... by distant
lakes, deep and clear and fringed with pines ... and at every turn of your journey down the
great Yukon River, the ghosts of the legendary era are present. You'll pan gold at the scene
of the original "strikes" . . . you'll shoot the rapids and walk the trails of the prospectors.
You'll ride through Dawson City in a stagecoach . . . you'll dance in the Nugget Dance Hall
. . . hear its honky-tonk rhythm and catch the faint fragrance of a vanished perfume.
You will find the arts of the Yukon in the carved ivory, the jewelry fashioned from pure gold, in
the intricate native bead work . . . you'll feast on the prospector's breakfast of bacon and
beans, wheaicakes, and strong, hot coffee, you'll fish in the deep rivers, walk in the keen
mountain air, and feel the soft winds of the north.
All this is the Yukon—the land in summer beyond any sunset—your return io the spirit of
discovery. For the civilization of the Yukon is only as deep as the man-made marks upon
its surface, and behind this mask—the true north mocks and beckons you. in

Living is easy on shipboard as you
relax on the spacious decks. New
friends share and enjoy the scenery.

Through narrow channels into the
natural cathedrals of rock and forests,
you see the North the prospectors
saw.
If you would go even deeper into the hear!
of the North, Alaska is just over the horizon.
At Dawson City, you may break your journey,
flying via Wien Alaska Airlines to Alaska. Your
journey northward is a slowly unfolding surprise
and delight. Unexpectedly, you find warm waters
and sun and a luxury hotel at Circle City Hot
Springs. You explore the pioneer town of Fort
Yukon, and you reach Fairbanks, a modern,
thriving foil for the silent wilderness beyond.
Across the rim of the Arctic Circle lies the
world of snows and shadows—and the Land of
the Midnight Sun. Here you'll fly through the
endless daylight of the beautiful Northern Summer. Farther and farther north to the shore of
the Arctic, where the "great silver bird" in
which you fly will land. Your Alaskan voyage
offers you more new sights and sounds and
tastes and sensations than your mind could
imagine. You will see Alaska in all its vastness
and strange beauty; you will return and you
will remember.  KLONDIKE

rolling hills, frosted mountains that challenge the sky,

the renowned Five Finger Rapids and the historic Rink
Rapids. Your plunging stern-wheeler offers every passenger the thrills of shooting the rapids, just as the old
gold miners experienced it half-a-century ago.

and Alec Pantages danced at the turn of the century.

operation of a modern gold dredge. You will learn how
to pan gold on an active claim, carefully supervised by
its owner, an original "sourdough". Back in town, a drive
up 4300 feet above the junction of the Yukon and
Klondike Rivers—the whole breathtaking world of legend
and poetry will be beneath you. A delicious dinner
aboard ship, then a visit to the local shops—mastodon,
ivory carving, culled from the bones of animals of
50,000 years ago . . . exquisite jewellery made from raw
gold, panned in the nearby creeks . . . Indian beadwork,
all the beautiful Klondike folk arts are for sale. So—in
the strange half-light of the mellow Midnight Sun, you
return to the boat. 4th DAY to 7th DAY (Friday to Monday) The next
four days are spent in a cruise at once leisurely but
exciting. On board, a myriad of activities await you—
usual shipboard games, card games and fishing where

shoreline of this historic lake.
