Folks, I love history and even though my trails is growing dimmer, I sure want to keep hunting and finding stories of the men who made our history possible. Perhaps you never heard of “Klondike Pete”. I sure hadn’t until I read this fantastic story of a pioneer who made three fortunes and lost ‘em all but he never gave up cause he firmly believed “that from our ancestors come our names but from our virtues.” Here is the story entitled

THE LADY LUCK GATE

THE HISTORY OF KLONDIKE PETE KERNS

Please read this. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the latter day pioneers who made the old west are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western heroes. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

Folks, sooner or later - Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer's dusty shelves. If I can contribute to finding one little name or photo of that long lost ancestor you have been waiting to find, it’s worth all the time I spend. As a tribute to the honor of our American Indians, my indexed listings will include all Indian names mentioned in the story from this time on
