ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Charley River and Yukon River in the Yukon Territory. Charley rises in the Tanana Hills and flows from headwaters about 40,000 feet above sea level and descending at an average gradient of 31 feet per mile to meet the Yukon River at 700 feet above sea level. There is an archaeological evidence indicating that the Charley River region may have been occupied as early as 27,000 years ago. This evidence makes the area a potential for answering questions relative to early man in the New World.
