Part 18: Dawson City: Pierre Berton, Prisoner of the North
Dawson City was a rough and ready city full of brothels, gambling parlors, and saloons during the Klondike Gold Rush at the turn of the 19th century. It was also home to three literary giants—Robert Service, Jack London, and Pierre Berton— whose homes are now museums open to the public.
