Death On The Chilkoot

Stampeders went up the Chilkoot Trail and never came back.





What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

That the stampeders where so desperate to get gold that they went on in life threatening conditions.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Filming was an amazing experience. I would do this again in a blink of an eye.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I feel fortunate that I do not have to walk along the Chilkoot as a job, only as a hobby.
