Arthur Drake, a teenage gang leader in London, crosses the line and has to flee England. Shanghaied, he spends over two years aboard ship on the Downey Cruiser. Art and four friends escape into California and end up in the gold fields in 1848. Being some of the first, they strike it rich.
The captain of the Downey Cruiser recaptures Big Mac and Arthur in Sacramento. They are taken back to England, in irons, to be hanged. Mabel and friends sail aboard a fast clipper ship, arrive ahead of them, and help them escape the noose. In their absence, things in California have gotten worse. Murder and thievery plague the mining camps. Art is seriously wounded as they try to bring law and order to the area.
