Abigail Champski would be content to continue working in her laboratory that sits in the corner of her father’s locomotive construction yard. Her father, unfortunately for Abigail, has been asked by his boss to head from New York to The Sierra Nevada Mountains. The reason? There’s gold in them thar hills and Cecil Champski is the man who can build equipment large enough to get at it.
The Gold Rush has happened, the Trans-Continental Railroad isn’t complete yet, and steam power combined with ingenuity will get them across the country to the Golden West where chaos reigns supreme. Getting at the gold may just be the easiest part of the job.
