In 1897, the world descended upon the frozen hills of the Yukon Territory, mad with gold fever. But little did they know the perils and pitfalls that awaited them. A trail lined with dead horses and stalked by a man-killer, a haunted cave mined by an army of the dead, and an endless swamp teeming with terrible serpents. And even then there was more. Enter the legendary Sam Steele of the North-West Mounted Police, commander of men and master of the wilderness. With knife and pistol, horse and saber, brute strength and keen mind, the mightiest Mountie of them all takes to the task of saving the gold-seekers from men and monsters alike.
