Authors on Stage Welcomes Howard Blum, author of "The Floor of Heaven"

Category: Summer Reading EventCategory: Authors
Location: Adrian Lamb Room

In The Floor of Heaven: A True Tale of the Last Frontier and the Yukon Gold Rush, a riveting real-life saga, bestselling author Howard Blum uses the intersecting stories of three larger-than-life characters at the twilight of the American West—a bonanza-seeking gold prospector, a cowboy-turned-lawman, and a wily con artist—to show how the opening of the “last frontier” in Alaska and the adjacent Canadian Klondike shaped America’s national character.

This event is part of the program Summer Read 2011: Memoir, Biography, and Autobiography.
