North to Alaska with a No-Account Cat

We found unique adventures in places such as Barkerville, a 'living ghost town, Homer, 'a drinking village with a fishing problem,' and Hyder, 'a town of a hundred happy souls and a few s_ _ _ t heads.' With locals and travelers alike, we shared stories including those about Rosie the cow, a Hell's Gate survivor; Mandy, a spell casting, haunted doll; an eighty-year-old condom; and about famous and infamous characters such as Jack London, Robert Service, Soapy Smith, Diamond Tooth Gertie, and 'soiled doves'-the Belgian Mare and Molly Fewclothes.
