It is 1899 as twenty-three-year-old Jackie Lindquist settles into a window seat on the train to St. Paul. Dissatisfied as a school marm, Jackie waves goodbye to her forlorn parents on the platform as her former life disappears behind her. Jackie does not look back, only ahead, for she is seeking adventure, riches, and possible romance-and she hopes to find it all amid the Klondike gold rush.
Jackie quickly learns that a beautiful young woman traveling alone must face many challenges-one of which is dealing with lecherous men. Determined to not let anyone stop her from realizing her dreams, Jackie transforms her appearance that night and becomes Jack Lindquist. After she continues on to Seattle, she temporarily transforms back into a woman, finds a creative way to fund the remainder of her trip, and soon partners with the handsome Matt Stonemark. While making the dangerous trek to the Klondike, the two rescue and acquire another partner, the newly-widowed Maureen Wilson. As the trio finally reaches their destination in Canada, now only time will tell if each will find exactly what they are seeking.
In this historical tale, three partners seeking adventure, love, and riches in the Klondike gold rush must learn to rely on perseverance, courage, and each other to make their dreams come true.
