Depicts some 100 women prospectors in often grueling, financially unrewarding, and lonely efforts to strike it rich from the desert southwest to the frozen rocks of Alaska and the Yukon. These women include Nellie Cashman; the copper queen, Ferminia Sarras, who was known for her periodic binges in San Francisco; a former rodeo champion turned prospector; and the ex-actress who snowshoed her way to Nome.
