Skagway: City of the New Century, compiled and edited by Jeff Brady

In this collection of historical features and photographs, author/editor Jeff Brady tells the "true story" of Alaska's best preserved and most popular historic town – from its beginnings as Dyea, a settlement of Native people trading on the Chilkoot Trail, to the growth of the nearby gold rush boomtown of Skagway, which survived its initial lawless reputation and settled into a community sustained by a railroad, port commerce and tourism. It's all here in a work that took 35 years for Brady to compile. "My history readers' pick of 2013." - Michael Gates, The History Hunter (Yukon News)

486 pages, more than 350 photos • $24.95 softbound, $49.95 hardbound • sold at Skaguay News Depot & Books and other local outlets - available outside Skagway in AK/USA from Epicenter Press, and in the Yukon/Canada from PR Distributing
