Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson
What ever happened to Mr. Sutter after gold was discovered on his land? By reading this book you will discover how the gold rush personally affected him, as well as the rest of the state of California. You will also discover what it was like for the gold miners who came to California in 1849. This cartoon-like book teaches children about the history of the Gold Rush in California. The facts are accurate and fun to read because of the format. The pictures and text look like they jumped out of the pages of a comic strip. The information is well researched and accurate, but the format is lively and easy for children to read and understand. The end of the book contains a section with a short glossary, Internet sites, and additional books to use for researching the gold rush. This book could be used in a history class as a fun way for youth to learn about the past.
