Overview

Jem Coulter thinks his family is just on a sightseeing trip to the big city of Sacramento. Then armed bandits hold up the stagecoach for the secret stash they’re carrying: gold for the Union Army fighting the distant Civil War! Suddenly war isn’t so far away; it’s right there on the road to Sacramento, with Jem’s father, the sheriff of Goldtown, fighting against the rebel army’s Knights of the Golden Circle. When the family finally reaches the city, they think they’re safe at last. Setting out to see the sights, Jem, his sister Ellie, and their cousin Nathan make a new friend. But is Henry the pal they think he is? With a father who is a die-hard Confederate, could Henry be in cahoots with the thieves? River of Peril gives readers ages 8 to 12 the fast-moving, exciting adventure they’ve come to expect in this series, as well as a glimpse into the history of post–Gold Rush and Civil War life in 1860s California, with stagecoaches, steamboats, stowaways—and lots of gold!

    Susan K. Marlow in her new book, ¿River Of Peril¿ Book Four in t

    Susan K. Marlow in her new book, “River Of Peril” Book Four in the Goldtown Adventures series published by Kregel Publications gives us another adventure with Jeremiah “Jem” Coulter .




    From the back cover:   Jem Coulter thinks his family is just on a sightseeing trip to the big city of Sacramento. Then armed bandits hold up the stagecoach for the secret stash they’re carrying: gold for the Union Army fighting the distant Civil War! Suddenly war isn’t so far away; it’s right there on the road to Sacramento, with Jem’s father, the sheriff of Goldtown, fighting against the rebel army’s Knights of the Golden Circle.




    When the family finally reaches the city, they think they’re safe at last. Setting out to see the sights, Jem, his sister Ellie, and their cousin Nathan make a new friend. But is Henry the pal they think he is? With a father who is a die-hard Confederate, could Henry be in cahoots with the thieves?




    In 1864 what would be an adventure is if the family left the small town they lived in and took a stagecoach ride to the big city of Sacramento, especially if the kids have never been there before.  Jem and his sister are in for another adventure as they get involved with rebels, robbers and kidnappers.  And what is this mystery regarding his sheriff father?  Stagecoaches, steamboats, stowaways and lots of gold are just some of the ingredients that Ms. Marlow has supplied in this new adventure.  She also provides lots of story with plenty of suspense.  I think Susan K. Marlow is an extremely talented writer who really knows how to tell a story that will grab you and keep you flipping pages.  “River Of Peril” is a very exciting book that will keep you engrossed in the characters.  I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

    I received a copy of CANYON OF DANGER and RIVER OF PERIL by Susa

    I received a copy of CANYON OF DANGER and RIVER OF PERIL by Susan K. Marlow from Kregel. They are books three and four in the Goldtown Adventures series.

    When they first arrived in the mail, my mother happened to be opening packages and exclaimed over the covers. She asked if she could read them as soon as I was done. Now that I’ve finished them, I’ve passed them on to her, and after that they’ll go to my young cousin. The novels are juvenile fiction that take place in 1864 when Jem Coulter is twelve-years-old. His name won me over since those are my initials and I’m sometimes called Jem by friends.
    In RIVER OF PERIL, Jem is after bandits. The historical detail is vibrant and the characters are real. From a teacher aspect, these books are perfect for introducing middle grade readers to the Wild West. I kept imagining lessons and activities to go along with the chapters.
