A servant girl and a soldier chase the dream of a fortune in gold, in a time of pioneering grit and sheer, glittering greed.
Annacara is an Apache servant, given fanciful dreams through piano lessons by an officer’s lady at a fort in 1896. Her obsessive love for Cavalryman Larne sees her following him, through Los Angeles where she longs to stay, to San Francisco’s Chinatown.
A steamboat full of men caked in gold arrives from the mighty Yukon's Klondike, and Larne seizes the chance. That rip-roaring hell of a stampede, and a goldmine, test their courage and love when faced by those whose sole aim in life is to dance on the grave of anyone more blessed. Annacara's warrior instincts are inflamed to devastating effect. A man lies dead, a child kidnapped, the gold gone, and Larne lost.
Searching for answers back in Chinatown, the 1906 earthquake forces Annacara and a troupe of showgirls to trek down the Camino Real mission trail to Los Angeles.
The keys to the child and to Larne are found there, as Hollywood’s notoriety grows.
And the gold? When Annacara performs with the famed Chautauqua-circuit players for a political convention in 1920, Franklin Delano Roosevelt asks her what happened to all that gold. Her answer is simple.
