I beat the Arctic by Leslie Melvin

This is a great read. And a book that I realized was written about the place I am sitting, only in another time and certainly another world before oil and internet and communications. 3 guys get to where I’m at from Nome by schooner, then build a place to live, then set out to live off the land over the winter and look for gold in the area the following summer. Lots more to the story as you’ll see if you read it.
