When sixteen-year-old Ned Turner sets off for the Klondike Gold Rush, he's confident that he'll soon be home with enough gold to pay off his widowed mother's debts and make the family rich. Little does he know the adventure that awaits him. Not only does Ned have to survive the perils of the long, dangerous trip to Dawson City, but, when he is befriended by the gambler Montana Jim Daley, he also learns a number of hard lessons about trust.

Destination Gold! weaves the story of Ned's journey to the gold fields with that of Catherine, another sixteen-year-old who travels north not to seek gold but to escape her troubled past. Terrified that the brutal gambler who won her in a card game will catch up with her, Catherine wants only to pass unnoticed until she can build a new life for herself. When the two teens' paths cross in Dawson, there is more than gold on the line!
