Summary
On a cold, gusty night in Circle City, Alaska, Sammy Day walks into Nagle's Bar. He is down to his last 50 cents, but he is sure he can make that grow in Nagle's back room. He's already made $50 at craps when Rush Mahan, known as the finest musher in Alaska, arrives with his lead dog, Klondike. They are impressive, but it is Rush's kid sister, Goldie, that catches Sammy's eye. When Rush starts a poker game in the back room, Sammy manages to get a seat at the table. Rush is convinced that Sammy has been cheating. A terrific fight develops between Sammy and Mahan that Sammy only narrowly wins. Because of his tenacity in the fight, Sammy is offered a job by the peculiar Bill the Dogman, who lives in a remote region beyond Circle City and breeds sled dogs. Despite warnings that he would never survive working for the Dogman, Sammy makes a bargain with Goldie that if he can sticks with the Dogman for a year and a day, she will marry him. She agrees and Sammy takes the job. for Sammy it is the beginning of an ordeal he comes to doubt he will ever survive, much less make good on his wager with Goldie Mahan
