This chapter traces the development of the arctic marine fur trade in the greater Bering Strait region (including the Chukchi Peninsula and Northwestern Alaska) from the founding of the gold rush town of Nome in 1899 until 1914. This includes the rise of the “mosquito fleet” of small trading schooners that wintered in the North and worked throughout the region.
