"Together, we can do so much."
| The year is 1909. The place is Nome, Alaska.
Nome is thriving and its streets are abuzz from all those who had moved north with the Gold Rush. The main entertainment of the town, however, isn't so much the Gold Rush alone as it is Dog sledding. Sled Dogs are held in high esteem with the beginning of organized dogsled racing, races proving a dog's worth and giving their owner bragging rights.
With the influx of humans due to the gold rush, the amount of dogs (both pets and strays) has risen as well. These dogs are used for everything; from companionship to herding, working, pulling, tracking and hunting. Without mans best friend, work in Nome just couldn't get done.
While the town is a Human and Dog's world, the world outside Nome's borders is not a safe place for those not wild at heart. With Alaska's wilderness right at the doorstep, how easy can life really be on the frontier?
