In the frontier town of Nome, Alaska, there’s a gold rush on. But you’ve never seen gold mining like this before — here, the precious metal isn’t found in the ground. It’s sitting in the most unlikely of places: the bottom of the frigid, unpredictable Bering Sea. And there are a handful of people willing to risk it all to bring it to the surface.
Riedel is the daughter of Steve Riedel and childhood friend of Zeke Tenhoff.
Emily is the daughter of Steve Riedel, and she's also Zeke Tenhoff's childhood friend (as well as former love interest). The couple parted ways - perhaps for good - following the death of their close friend and co-worker John Bunce.
After a dismal season on the ice working with her dad, Emily struck out on her own. She purchased and renamed the Edge (now the Eroica), after her favorite symphony.
Emily's crew crew quit mid-season, but she quickly gained Vernon's pro diving crew. They ended up having a stellar summer season, and now everyone is back for more.
This time, Emily's bringing up a six-inch surface dredge, as well as Rob Hehnlin's submersible dredge prototype.
Both Emily and Zeke have access to Claim 14, but Emily is trying to gain permission to use an area two miles to the east. If that plan fails, she and Zeke won't be working far from each other.
