    I Married the Klondike PDF ✓ I MarriedeBook married kindle, klondike book, I Married mobile, I Married the Klondike EpubMy little brother and brother in law sent me I Married the Klondike for Christmas It's really a miracle that I actually got to read it because my husband claimed it first and preceded to leave it in a hotel room in Idaho while he was working there Housekeeping found it and was able to send it back to us so I got my turn I give it three out of five stars This is a memoir written about the authors years living in the Klondike She went as a kindergarten teacher expecting to stay just one year but ended up spending many years up north I only give it three stars because even though I enjoyed it the author wrote mostly just the facts about life in Dawson City and left all emotion out of it That being said it was still a very interesting read
