“A genuine, stirring, living narrative of that wild, modern romance, the gold rush.” — The Pilot.
MISS ROBINS, in “ Paola and Francesca."
A Few of the Early Comments by Important Critics
“This is an age when praise is cheap and genius grows at every second yard along the New Grub Street. Therefore when we say that 'The Magnetic North' is
A REALLY BIG NOVEL it is just possible that so bare a eulogy may not carry quite so much as we intend. Consequently we must say more, and we venture to add that this book is
THE STRONGEST AND WISEST AND MOST
LIBERAL PIECE OF WORK that we have read from a woman's pen for a long time past." - London Sun.
“Lives because it is real, and because it adds to the ripe fruits of actual experience something of the ideal and the imaginative in its treatment. . . . It is AN EXTRAORDINARY BOOK FOR A WOMAN TO WRITE.”
- London Daily Telegraph.
“Everyone who reads it
HIS MIND OF THE VARIED ASPECTS OF THE WORLD ... There is humor and pathos and some suggestion of those unanswerable questions of human action and destiny which are as real on the banks of the Yukon as on more famous rivers of history.” - London Daily News.

“ To say that The Nature Library is delightful is putting it mildly. I am a very busy dry goods merchant, and when I find that the figures run together and columns do not add up right, I put on my hat, jump on my wheel (in summer), and in five minutes I am among the birds, wild flowers, and butterflies, and insects so plainly described in The Nature Library, and after an hour's ' hunt without a gun,' come back full of life and vigor, and in a short time make up the stolen hour. If on my trip I have found several new flowers or have seen and heard a new bird, I can by the use of my Library(which
upon my desk at all times) find the name, habits, and life his Doubleday, tory of such, and witk such Page & diversion life is more pleasant
