Phillips soon falls in love with Countess Courteau but when he proposes to her he discovers that she already has a husband.

When Phillips pays more attention to Rouletta, a daughter of a gambler, Laure becomes jealous and conspires with Count Courteau, who believes that Phillips is his wife's lover. Set in Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush, this novel will be enjoyed by fans of 'Goldrush: A Real Life Alaskan Adventure', and 'The Klondike Gold Rush'.-
