The author, an associate profess of journalism at the University of Alaska, had “been researching the history of the Far North for more than thirty years. The story of the dance hall girls and prostitutes of the gold rush provides a rich social history as well as unexpected elements of their lives, especially their entrepreneurship. By way of example, the ladies of Fairbanks commissioned photograph portraits, most of which “showed the women exquisitely dressed in elegant surroundings.” (cf. p. 202)
