GOLD! GOLD! GOLD tells the story of two young cousins who headed for the Yukon in 1898, seeking adventure as well as gold.
Leaving San Francisco on a steamship, they arrive at the port of Dyea, Alaska. Their long journey to the gold fields begins with a 16½ mile trek to the summit of the Chilkoot trail. This requires climbing 3,759 feet, the final, steepest portion of which is the Golden Stairs. The two mase numerous trips up and down, ferrying the ton of goods required for entry into Canada
This is only the beginning, with many more challenges ahead before they reach Dawson City and start their search for gold.
