Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The gold rush days of the mid 19th century were a fascinating time in American history. Told from the viewpoint of a doll, Hitty, we follow Annie and her father as they travel to the gold fields of California. They are unprepared for the harshness of the journey and the environment of the gold fields. Hitty tells of the long voyage to Panama, the frightening and dangerous trip across Panama, and the long and even more crowded trip to San Francisco. Their trip is not complete once they arrive in San Francisco, however. The gold fields are many miles away, and they have to wait even longer for transportation and a guide. Once they reach the gold fields, Annie and her father quickly realize that the work is much more difficult and less rewarding than they had realized. Annie's father decides after only a few months that it is pointless to continue such back breaking work and determines to live in San Francisco to begin a school for the many homeless children and children of new arrivals. Rather than the familiar history told by adults who actually worked in the gold fields, Weiss offers a different historical perspective of the California gold rush of 1949, which was a difficult and uncertain time for many of the people who flocked west in the search for fortune. The text is easy to read and quite suitable for beginning readers. Part of the "Hitty's Travels" series. 2001, Simon & Schuster, $3.99. Ages 6 to 9. Reviewer:Danielle Williams
