Stranded in 1864 at the height of the Cariboo Gold Rush the threesome must learn how to survive in a dangerous world where often the lure of gold is stronger than moral values.They first travel the old Cariboo Road with the Cox brothers, Theo and Enos, who together with Jackson, their unpleasant helper, are hauling freight up to the famous gold rush town of Barkerville. It’s an arduous and at times dangerous journey on a road hastily built to accommodate the throng of people seeking riches around the creeks of the Cariboo. On the way, they meet the gold miner, Dan McKenna, who has made his fortune at Williams Creek. When McKenna disappears, leaving a prized watch behind, Zach suspects Jackson has killed McKenna to get at his gold.When they arrive in Barkerville, Theo Cox is arrested. As it turns out, Dan McKenna’s body has been discovered in a shallow grave and all evidence point to Theo Cox as the perpetrator of the crime. Soon Theo Cox finds himself fighting for his life at a trial presided over by the imposing straight talking Judge Begbie. Desperately, Zach tries to find a way to save Cox from the gallows.
