Sandy Frances Duncan has woven a fascinating tale of hardship and adventure based on her grandfathers gold rush journal entries of his 1898 trip to the Klondike. The arduous trek to the goldfields comes alive in the fictionalised story of Jeremy Britain, a young teen who joins James Fraser and his companions to search for the gold that would make their fortunes.

Duncan begins the story in the gold rush port of Skagway where Jeremy has a run-in with the infamous Soapy Smith and his gang. the implacable storms of winter as Jeremy struggles with the rest of his crew to climb the White Pass, not once but many times, in order to carry all the supplies needed to survive in the wilderness. It is a never-to-be-forgotten trip as Jeremy and the men struggle to care for the horses and dogs carrying the crews supplies through deep snow and freezing temperatures.

Once spring break arrives, there is the new challenge of navigating the swollen rivers on home-made rafts and boats. When Jeremys group unexpectedly veers away from the usual route to Dawson and the Klondike to venture into uncharted lands, Jeremy begins furiously panning the streams they cross as they follow a mysterious account that promises the mother lode.
