About this Item

Victoria: The Author, 2012. Glossy trade paperback. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. 297pp. Includes index. Profusely illustrated with maps, photo illustrations in black and white, and some in colour. As new condition. A new and important contribution to Klondike Gold Rush history. From a review in the Times Colonist paper: "Architect Francis Rattenbury is well-known in Victoria for the buildings he created around the Inner Harbour, including the Fairmont Empress and the parliament buildings - The gold rush there began as the parliament buildings were nearing completion, and Rattenbury was looking for something new. He saw the need for a steamboat service on the Yukon River. Rattenbury had three small steamboats built, and the Bennett Lake and Klondyke Navigation Company started service in 1898. It was not to last; at the end of June 1902, the company was closed and the vessels were pulled off the river." Motherwell provides a lively and detailed narrative which relies on his own travels in the Yukon and extensive research in private and public sources conducted over many years. In 2006, he visited the cemetery in Bournemouth, England where Rattenbury was buried in 1935. When Motherwell found that the grave was unmarked, he decided to do something about it. He spent $3,200 on a headstone that features an image of the parliament buildings and the words: "In remembrance of Francis Mawson Rattenbury, 11 October 1867 - 28 March 1935. A British Columbia Architect.". Bookseller Inventory # 2264
