Description
A brown leather book cover, covering a bible. The cover has a beadwork design on the back consisting of a white x-shape on a blue background, and the sides are edged with blue and clear beads. There is an inscription on the back of the front cover stating: "Chauwutla(?) / Indian Residential / Mission School, / Carcrass, Yukon / 1963 - 1964". The first inset page also has an inscription stating: "Margaret Logan - / Cover made / by Mrs. Edith / Henderson, wife / of Patsy Henderson, / Chief- and / founder of / gold in Bonanza Creek". The book itself is described as: "Containing the Old and New Testaments."

The maker name and date made refer to the beadwork cover. Note re: Patsy Henderson: he was with a group in 1896 who apparently were one of two claims to have discovered gold on Rabbit Creek (then renamed Bonanza Creek), that started the Yukon gold rush.
