David Adkin's “First Lady of the Yukon” is the gripping tale of Martha Black, a young society wife who left a life of privilege in Chicago for the adventure of the Klondike Gold Rush in 1898. Photographed in the raw beauty of the Yukon, this is a dramatic story of an American woman's determination to claim her own independence. Martha Black built a new life for herself in the perilous frontier of the Gold Rush. She raised a family, succeeded in business, and eventually represented the Yukon in Parliament as Canada's second female M.P. Incorporating excerpts from Martha Black's autobiography, powerfully read by actress Jackie Burroughs, “First Lady of the Yukon” is a very personal, eye-witness account of the hardship and heroism that helped shape the Canadian Northwest. In French: Première dame du Yukon, La: Martha Black
