Description
Twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting at the New York Times, as well as the Edgar Award–winning author of American Lightning, Howard Blum here gives us a fascinating portrait of the last American frontier, the Yukon Gold Rush. In the final years of the 19th century, the Wild West has been tamed and its larger-than-life heroes have outlived their usefulness. Then gold is discovered on the Klondike River, igniting a giddy mix of greed and wanderlust into a stampede. Blum follows three unforgettable men—George Carmack, who filed the first mining claims; con man and crime boss Soapy Smith; and Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo—in a gripping true-life tale.

"Dramatic and colorful with touches of humor and poignancy, The Floor of Heaven has the spark of a television miniseries and the depth of a novel. That Blum's tale of adventure is tall but true makes it all the more enjoyable, particularly because its heartbeat is so keenly American."—Associated Press
