Arizona Charlie was King of the Cowboys--crack shot, a champion lasso twirler and a fearless horseman. He was famous all over the world. And he'd come to live in the gold rush town of Dawson City. The year is 1899. The place is Dawson City, Yukon. Ben longs to be a Wild West star, just like Arizona Charlie. He practices lassoing. He perfects his aim with a slingshot. At last he gets a place in the closing act of the Wild West show. Ben prepares to perform in front of a packed house, but the performance does not go as he expected. Will Ben earn the title that he dreams of? Will he become the Klondike Kid?
