Klondike is a region of the Yukon Territory in Northwest Canada, just east of the Alaskan border. On 16 August 1896, rich gold deposits were found in Bonanza (Rabbit) Creek, a tributary of the Klondike River. This sparked the Klondike goldrush of 1897-98. News of the discovery reached the United States in July, 1897, and within a month thousands of people were leaving their homes and jobs and pouring into the north. Over the next six months, approximately 100,000 gold-seekers set off for the Yukon: only 30,000 completed the trip.

In the gold rush of 1849, many people flocked from the east to California looking to strike it rich. There were so many people that moved to California that it was able to become a state. Also, in the 1897-1898 gold rush in the Yukon Territory, many people stopped what they were doing to go to Dawson in the Yukon Territory. Life on the way to Dawson was very cold (-60 degrees) and there was 70 feet of snow! It was also very unforgiving and unlikely that the newcomers could even survive the journey through the snow, rapids, an avalanche, and illness. Only about 400 out of 1,000,000 made a lot of money
