about

It's 1898, and Bucky can't wait to get to Alaska to find gold and adventure. But the journey is hard. Bucky, Pa, and Uncle Tanner must face deadly storms, numbing cold, and the Golden Stairs—a grueling six-hour nonstop trudge up the mountainside with heavy packs on their backs. Can Bucky make it?

Bucky and his father, prospecting for gold in Alaska in 1898, must overcome storms, dangerous mountain trails, and wilderness predators before confronting the final challenge of human treachery.
