The Steamer Keno, (above) was the last of the famous Paddlewheelers on the
Yukon River system. Our editor/publisher
Jerry W. Bird was a crew member on the Keno
for two summers. He was also a longshoreman for the fleet, working with native crews at
Mayo Landing and Dawson City. The river fleet sailed between Nome, Alaska, in the far north
to Dawson City, and from there to the railhead at Whitehorse (1890s to the 1950s).
