At last, the story of Robert Service’s characters that have fascinated millions of readers for most of the twentieth century come to life in a love triangle that starts in San Francisco and travels to Alaska and finally culminates in Dawson City in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Author Emil Rasmussen immerses readers into a thick plot that’s sure to excite them in The Man Who Shot Dan McGrew.
Emerson Smith is a concert pianist, one of the world’s greatest. Horribly injured in a carriage accident in San Francisco, his life is saved by Dan McGrew, who stops the runaway team. As Emerson lays mending in the hospital, his wife, Louise, seeks out McGrew to thank him for his heroic act. She soon finds herself entangled with the handsome gambler. The love triangle that develops is played out against the backdrop of the early days of the Circle City Gold Rush and the rush to Dawson City in the Yukon Territory at the height of the greatest stampede in history, the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898.
