"Gold!" Jason shouted at the top of his lungs. "Read all about it! Gold discovered in Alaska!"

Within hours of hearing the thrilling news, fifteen-year-old Jason Hawthorn jumps a train for Seattle, stow away on a ship bound for the goldfields, and joins thousands of fellow prospectors attempting the difficult journey to the Klondike. The Dead Horse Trail, the infamous Chilkott Pass, and a five-hundred-mile trip by canoe down the Yukon River lie ahead. With help from a young writer named Jack London, Jason and his dog face moose, bears, and the terrors of a subartic winter in this bone-chilling survival story.

From the Inside Flap:

"We've got millions!" the prospectors roared to the throng at Seattle's docks. "The Klondike is the richest goldfield in the world!"

Within moments, the telegraph is humming with the news. Within hours, fifteen-year-old Jason Hawthorn is rushing west from New York City with a bad case of Klondike fever. Jason is sure his brothers back in Seattle will grubstake him, but they've already taken off for the goldfields.

Desperate to catch up with them, Jason stows away on a ship headed for Alaska. The Dead Horse Trail and then the infamous Chilkoot Pass stand between him and the perilous last leg of his journey: Can he make it five hundred miles down the Yukon River before freeze-up? As Jason battles his way north, he meets a Canadian girl named Jamie and is befriended by a twenty-one-year-old Californian named Jack London, but his only constant companion is King, a husky he rescues from a madman. Together they'll face moose, bears, and the terrors of the subarctic winter.

For readers who love a survival story told with bone-chilling authenticity, Will Hobbs has spun a saga of courage, friendship, and endurance set under the northern lights and amidst the actual events of the Klondike gold rush.

About the Author:

Will Hobbs is the award-winning author of nineteen novels, including Far North, Crossing the Wire, and Take Me to the River.

Never Say Die began with the author's eleven-day raft trip in 2003 down the Firth River on the north slope of Canada's Yukon Territory. Ever since, Will has been closely following what scientists and Native hunters are reporting about climate change in the Arctic. When the first grolar bear turned up in the Canadian Arctic, he began to imagine one in a story set on the Firth River.

A graduate of Stanford University, Will lives with his wife, Jean, in Durango, Colorado.
