Setting out with his Pa during the Klondike Goldrush of 1896 in search of gold, Noah has a difficult decision to make. Pa says that he must leave his beloved cat, Shadow, behind. Unable to part with his dear friend, Noah substitutes his warm sweater in his pack for Shadow. As you read 'The Klondike Cat' by Julie Lawson, you follow Noah and his Pa, as they become members of the 'Klondike Stampede'. Through this book's beautiful illustrations, you are able to imagine Noah's long trip, first to Dyea, Alaska; onward to the White Pass Trail; across Lake Bennet down to the Yukon River; and finally reaching Dawson City. In this easy-to- read historical picture book, you learn how Noah struggles to keep Shadow safe and prove to his father that both he and Shadow can make a difference.
