Toby's Story

My film is about A miner who goes to the Klondike to strike it rich. He soon realizes that he needs more to survive the Chilkoot Trail.




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

I learned that the miners had to carry one ton of food and tools across the pass. That's more than 30 trips up and down!

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

I learned that you need to have patience with the film making software and that you have to be creative with your video!

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

In 1898 the miners had no power and very loose clothing. Today we have more advanced tools and objects to help us.
