Nome, Alaska in 1899-1900. On the edge of a new century remote Alaska becomes the new frontier as thousands arrive for the gold rush of 1898. Wyatt Earp arrives with his wife in 1899 and build the Dexter Saloon. There the Earps are reunited with George Parsons and John Clum of their Tombstone days. The sleepy fishing village of Nome has been transformed into a muddy cesspit of filth and infinite opportunity. Will you gamble at the Dexter as you live in a squalid tent on the beach, panning for gold? Can you sleep with the constant sounds of hammering and sawing as the town rises up from the mud?

I wanted the gold, and I sought it;
I scrabbled and mucked like a slave.
Was it famine or scurvy—I fought it;
I hurled my youth into a grave.
I wanted the gold, and I got it— ?
Came out with a fortune last fall,—
Yet somehow life’s not what I thought it,
And somehow the gold isn’t all.

Robert W. Service
