As seen on 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 4 the team manages to get back on course and continues to travel down the Yukon River but the food shortage becomes critical. The arrival in Dawson is a huge celebration, and the team enjoys real food and their first bath in over 2 months. Dave and Andria part ways with the rest of the team to experience life in Dawson. Andria finds a job as a barmaid in a 100-year old pub and Dave, a journalist, writes about his experiences on the journey while the other 3 men travel by horseback to the gold field and try their luck at prospecting.moreless
