about

Gold Diggers of the Klondike explores beyond the myths of the dance–hall girls and prostitutes of the Klondike gold rush, and uncovers the stories of the women who "mined the miners." In chronicling prostitution in Dawson city during the height and the decline of the rush, Ryley reveals that sexuality is an important aspect of the history of the Canadian frontier.

Bay Ryley is a writer and editor from Toronto. Her four summers spent in Whitehorse, Yukon, captured her interest in the infamous can–can girl and prompted this book.

From Our Editors

Gold Diggers of the Yukon goes beyond the myths of the dance-hall girls and prostitutes of the Klondike gold rush and uncovers stories of the women who hoped to make a lucrative marriage or financially rewarding liaison among the luckier miners. By taking a second look at the events, historian Bay Ryley reveals the important role sexuality played in the history of the Canadian frontier.
