It's 1852, and California's Gold Rush is in full swing. Tempers are flaring along the mighty Klamath River, where men are wild with gold-rush fever. 14-year-old Hudson treads carefully amongst them, desperate to find her long-lost father. She can only pray that he'll take her in. A battle erupts between miners and local tribespeople, trapping Hudson in the crossfire. She is no fighter; she's just a runaway kid from San Francisco in need of a family. But her inner strength is sorely tested when her newfound father is attacked and wounded. Hudson can't bear to lose the only parent she's ever known. Can she get them both to safety? Can she survive disaster?
