Klondike: Quest for Gold

Show Summary

Klondike: Quest for Gold is a living history documentary series that follows the adventures of four men and one woman who set out to experience the route traveled by tens of thousands of would-be prospectors during the Klondike Gold Rush, completing the arduous journey in the same conditions and with the same equipment as would have been common in 1897. Just before the turn of the century, gold was discovered in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada, a town near the Alaska/Canada border. Hopeful prospectors flocked North, arriving by sea or land, with the intent of bringing home a fortune from the wealthy town. However, riches only lay at the end of the trail for a precious few prospectors, and everyone had to endure the same harsh weather and long, difficult walks through snow in order to get to the remote Canadian town. In this series, viewers can witness just how deadly the infamous Chilkoot Trail and Pass were. Klondike: Quest for Gold is a revealing and entertaining series about five people who ignore modern conveniences to relive one of the harshest hikes in history.moreless
