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.

The Arctic Brotherhood: The Story of Alaska-Yukon's Most Influential Order

by Ashley Bowman

The Arctic Brotherhood, a fraternal order that emerged from the Klondike Gold Rush, established itself in the boomtowns of Skagway, Bennett, Atlin, and Dawson City and then spread into the Alaska Interior and all the way to Nome. In this captivating history by Ashley Bowman, we learn all the quirks of this order and how its camp members influenced the Alaska Home Rule movement before the Brotherhood quickly faded away in the 1920s. A few A.B. Halls still stand in the North, including ornate structures in Skagway and Dawson, a testament to the order and its motto: "No Boundary Line Here."

$14.95 paperbound, illustrated with more than 30 historic photos and 2 maps. Cover art by Dorothy Brady.
