the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi
“Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar
gold rush in the wilderness of Hokkaido. When he stumbles across a map
to a fortune in hidden Ainu gold, he sets off on a treacherous quest to
find it. But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who
knows about the gold will kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh
conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals and rogue
Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skills and luck—and the
help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa—to survive.
