John Augustus Sutter came to the wide and wild California country to build an empire. At his side was Morgan Beck, out to stake his own claim at the confluence of two powerful rivers, the Sacramento and the American.

While the two adventurers follow new fortunes westward, the ill-fated Donner Party is mired in the grip of frozen death high in the Sierra Nevadas. Suddenly, Sutter and Beck are torn between the hot winds of revolution, and the desperate pleas of the trapped immigrant party. Little do they know of the icy horrors under the snows of the mountain pass. At stake is the greatest agricultural empire in California - Sutter's Fort - on the banks of the wide American River.

    " An interesting and factual historical story of a facet of the Yukon gold rush.
    Reads like a novel in some spots. In others too much detail and a bit dry.
    Good read, if somewhat tedious.
    Blum is a good writer. "

    " We are told an excellent story about the Yukon Gold Rush as witnessed by three very different men. One man is a prospector, one is a criminal, and the last is a visiting Pinkerton detective doing his job. "
