THE BIRDMAN OF TREADWELL
Through his diaries Edwin Warren takes you back in time over a hundred years ago as if in a time capsule. It is as if you are there by his side and can imagine you are in his place as he witnesses death and injury on all too many occasions in the world famous Treadwell gold mine on Douglas Island, Alaska.
You will experience the daily routine working at the mine including a near riot, rescuing a little Indian boy from a near tragic fall, the Treadwell Ghost, the fear of working with an incompetent hoist operator who dropped the cage on several occasions including once with volatile explosives. Working as a powder man you will come close to death in a near collision with the ore train and the powder truck. You will experience what the accommodations were like at the beginning of the last century on the many different steam boats Edwin sailed on during his two adventures to Alaska.
