Full Episode Summary

As seen on the History Channel comes a new "living history" series that follows 4 men and 1 woman who retrace the historic route taken during the 1897 Klondike Gold Rush. Their amazing 10-week journey takes them along the infamous Chilkoot Trail, and to the gold fields near Dawson City. Our modern-day prospectors complete this journey with only the clothes, tools and resources of the era and carrying 3000 lbs. of provisions, giving them a true sense of the challenges faced in 1897. In episode three the team arrives at the town site of Bennett. They acquire a wooden scow and assemble the knockdown canoe they carried over the trail and start their trip up the waterways of the Yukon River. Battling severe gale force winds with their small boats, the team experiences several setbacks before getting blown off course and stranded on shore of a Yukon lake.moreless
