Publisher's summary

"We've got millions!" the prospectors roared to the throng at Seattles' docks. "The Klondike is the richest goldfield in the world!"

Within moments, the telegraph is humming the news. Within hours,15-year-old Jason Hawthorn is rushing west from New York City with a bad case of Klondike fever.

For readers who love a survival story told with bone-chilling authenticity, Will Hobbs has spun a saga of courage, friendship, and endurance set under the northern lights and amidst the actual events of the Klondike gold rush.
