Summary
Documentary on the Klondike Gold Rush which takes place in Dawson City in 1897-98. Through memorable vintage photographs, period music, and an evocative narrative, this richly emotional, nostalgic film recreates the time of unbelievable journeys across vast, frozen wastelands; of a frontier town created out of nothing; of multitudes seized with gold fever, and searching for El Dorado. Years later, instead of thirty thousand inhabitants, there are about three hundred; the town is but a ghost of its glory era. Haunting images show the deserted dance halls and railways, the dusty Victorian paintings, and the old men, who sit in the sun and talk of the old days
