The Upper Yukon River region that includes Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve is full of stories. From those of the Han Athapaskans that have lived here for generations to the trappers and traders of the first Euro-American commercial interests, to the floods of people ensnared by the lure of Klondike gold.
