Aunt Phil’s Trunk Proudly Presents The Spoilers by Rex Beach
Rex Beach’s classic, first released in 1905, is a fictional tale based on actual events that occurred during the rush for gold in Nome, Alaska, during 1899-1900. A bestseller by 1906, the story revolves around a crooked politician and judge who manipulated the legal system to rob miners of their gold. They eventually were thwarted by the judge’s niece and a few kindhearted, yet determined, miners. The Spoilers was made into a Hollywood movie five times!
