About this Skagway, Alaska tour
You're probably dang curious about this old camp's colorful name, right? "Liarsville" mocks the journalists who congregated here to cover the Gold Rush of the late 1890s. And there's good reason for the ridicule.
For thousands of would-be prospectors, their quest was an arduous undertaking – so difficult that journalists didn't make it themselves. They set up camp near Skagway and based their stories on what they heard from men returning from the mines. The journalists' stories about reaching the Yukon and striking it rich made it all sound easy.
But that wasn't true. The miners had to make it 550 miles north, trekking through the rugged White Pass with all their gear, and navigating the perilous rapids of the Yukon River to Dawson City. Many didn't make it, and most of those who did returned broke. Yet the journalists' tall tales caused many to cash in their savings and leave their families, only to find the real story was heartbreak and disappointment.
But that's the old Liarsville. You won't be disappointed here. Tuck into a feast of salmon, chicken, pasta, rice medley, beans, salads, and cornbread, washed down with coffee and lemonade, with blueberry cake for dessert. Then wander through history, see the camp's tents and bordello, shop for a keepsake, and have you photo snapped with a dance hall girl or friendly Alaskan malamute. Liarsville's a lot of fun. And that's the truth.
This stuff started something
Every savvy California and Yukon prospector had a special pouch hanging from his neck or belt. It was starter for making bread. These starters made bread with a distinctive tang, so it became known as sourdough. Soon the name was applied to the miners themselves, and eventually to long-time Alaskans too. Modern sourdoughs have it easy. They don't have to sleep with their starter to keep it from freezing like the miners did.
