Summary
Englishman Benjamin Knowles heads for America to build a new life and joins up with three young Americans--journalist Timothy Skaggs, war veteran Duff Lucking, and Duff's actress sister, Polly--to seek their fortunes in the gold fields of California
Summary
As the world is being transformed by astonishing new technologies and ideas, in one single, monumental month of 1848 gold is discovered in California, the United States wins its first foreign war, rebellion erupts throughout Europe--and an eager young English gentleman named Benjamin Knowles plunges into love with the strong-minded New York actress and part-time prostitute Polly Lucking. He also meets her brother Duff, a dangerously damaged veteran of the Mexican War, and befriends the unforgettable Timothy Skaggs--journalist, daguerrotypist, mischief maker, stargazer. As they set out on a wild, extraordinary transcontinental race west, lured by the prospect of easy wealth and new beginnings, they are unaware that a stranger bent on revenge shadows their every move
