The winter of 1896 is not a great one for 14 year old Maude. Her mother has died and now her father is going to leave to try his luck on the California gold rush. Maude is told that relatives will take her in but that doesn't happen and she's left fending for herself. She gets a job in a boarding house where she becomes friends with Yee, the Chinese cook and Annie, an Apache. Maude sees the prejudice that her friends suffer. Eventually, she and Annie decide to move away from Eldorado and try to start life over again.
