1898 Recommendations for the Klondike

This is a section from the Official Guide to the Klondike put out in 1898.  It was well respected at the time and this section covers mainly food and clothing.  The food ration was purposely made about 50% high to allow for cold, hard work and some loss to conditions.  I thought it is an interesting piece and gives some insight to the problems one can face in a cold climate.
