Charlie Stucliffe's world is collapsing around him, helpless to alter the momentum of events. When his wife, Karen, discovers the nineteenth century handwritten Alaskan Gold Rush journal of Absalom Sutcliffe, Charlie\u2019s great-great-grandfather, prospects begin to look up for a family in debt due to their seven-year-old daughter\u2019s medical treatments. This journal details a course leading to Absalom\u2019s hidden gold. Charlie and his best friend, George, embark on a journey toward the Northern Wilderness to locate and retrieve Absalom\u2019s gold, but as they follow their prospect\u2019s same century-old gilded path, what they don\u2019t expect is someone else is seeking the same riches. Along the way, Charlie discovers something even more valuable than gold.
