It's thirty below zero in the Canadian wilderness, your long underwear is frozen stiff on the line, and you're about to relive one of the greatest adventures in North American history. Join four courageous young men on their 1,800-mile, eight-month trek to retrace the steps of the gold stampeders of 1898. You'll build a log raft and steer it through treacherous rapids, and when the river freezes you'll travel by dog sled through freezing rain and thigh-high snow-drifts. Bathe in an icy lake and share a tasty supper of moose meat. You'll reach the gold rush town of Dawson where you'll march in the annual stampeder's parade, and celebrate your thrilling journey through the Yukon Passage.
