Mystery Blogger Z’s 2013 theme: “My theme for the challenge this year is Alaska, the setting of my novel. . . .”
Z is for Zarnowksy
A Russian, Zarnowsky has a dubious claim to fame, as he is known for unwittingly selling half of the richest gold claim on the richest gold creek in the Alaskan Far North for a sack of flour and a side of bacon.
Zarnowsky believed he was too late to strike it rich with his claim, which was along a small stream known as “Bonanza’s Pup.” That small stream would eventually become known as Eldorado Creek, which was the most valuable placer discovery in history.
Alex McDonald, who bought Zarnowsky’s claim for that bacon and flour in 1896, later became known as the “The King of the Klondike,” and made a fortune during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897-1898.
Who is it? HINT: I already gave you one. Take a look at the theme.
