The Last Patrol

ebook

In December 1910, Inspector Fitzgerald and his crew left Fort McPherson, Northwest Territories, on a dog team patrol to Dawson City, Yukon. These four officers would be remembered as the Lost Patrol of 1911: after running out of supplies and experiencing brutally cold weather, they faced starvation and eventually froze to death. Sixty years later, Keith Billington organized a re-enactment of the historic trip using dog teams. Nine of his companions were experienced Gwich'in men, two of whom had previously made the trip. Billington weaves together the stories of the men who lost their lives and the stories of those who risked their lives to commemorate the sacrifice of the Lost Patrol.
