Located on the Alaskan Panhandle, Skagway emerged as a gateway to the Yukon and Klondike goldfields, and incorporated as a city in 1900. This scarce community cookbook was published at a time when Skagway was the base for more than 3,000 U.S. Army troops tasked with building the Alcan Highway. Includes recipes for yeast and quick breads, waffles and hotcakes, cookies, refrigerator desserts, casseroles and luncheon dishes, vegetables, salads and salad dressings, candies, pickles and preserves, etc. There is also a recipe for a butter extender from the University of Alaska Extension Service and a section on quantity cooking.
