Like her older sister Elaine, Yvonne has popped in and out of Nome, helping her father on and off in various aspects of his gold mining business over the years. Now, she’s joining the Gold Ship’s maiden voyage, hoping to keep things running smoothly. Having inherited her father’s spirit for adventure – as well as a touch of his gold fever – Yvonne is looking forward to spending some time with her family as they trek down the Yukon River and into the Alaskan wilderness.
