    Caption on image: Mollie Walsh, the wonder girl of White Pass Trail. Alone and without help in the winter of 1897-8 she ran a tent road-house and fed and lodged the wildest and most persistent men Alaska ever saw and remained as clean morally as the snow that fell on her tent.

Mollie Walsh was murdered by her husband, October 28th, 1902.Filed in Yukon Territory. less
