The city of Dawson have become the coronary heart of the Gold Rush; for in 1886, Captain Moore, a citizen of Canada who have been prospecting for gold in the Canadian northwest, found a path he known as the "White Pass." This path allowed for the transportation of substances, correspondence, and men into the Alaskan indoors, and it lead directly to Dawson.In truth, the journey to the Klondike turned into a dangerous and luxurious undertaking.
