Description

From the onset of the First World War, the people of Yukon created an idealized image of the Yukon prospector/soldier and imbued him with qualities of imperial frontier manliness that reflected local self-identities. This paper explores how Yukoners understood masculinity, how they tied that masculinity to the war effort and how it shaped their experience of the war.
