About This Item

Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1973. "Drifting Home" is an account of a journey by Pierre Berton and his family down one of the world's last great wild rivers, the Yukon. In it Berton has created a special magic through a unique blending of nostalgia, his deep love of the land, and his unrivalling knowledge of the history of the area. This journey took the family over the Klondike goldrush route of 1898 from Lake Bennet, BC. to Dawson in the Yukon Territory. An album of colour photographs follow page 144. The twenty-four pages of photographs are by Robert Holmes. Yellow-orange boards with gilt title print to spine. Map endpapers. Nameplate to fep and name to prelim. A very nice, bright square copy in a price-intact dust jacket.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
