Why would a young high-middle class family trade the good life for a tiny one-room cabin in Alaska’s wilderness? It began from a simple dream to go off and live a simpler and less complicated life. That dream set them on a course to Gold Dust Creek to become gold miners to the utter shock of family and friends. Had they gone mad? Where was the sanity in risking all for a dream that might never come true and going from Riches to Rags? Beginning from scratch, with no clue about gold mining, this courageous family ventured out, taking it a step at a time without ever knowing what to expect. There were many bumps in the road and obstacle in their path. Somehow it all worked out and reality became bigger than life and bigger even than they dared to dream. Within eleven years they made history in Alaska, developing the most advanced technology in the gold mining industry. This is the story of how they did it. Experience some of their harrowing moments with bears, armed intruders, and Mother Nature’s fury, as well as hilarious encounters with nature’s cute and clever critters in Alaska’s awesome wilderness.
