This is the fourth historical adventure from the "The Wurtherington Diary" series. Prepare to meet Cedric the mongoose, Zeke the orphaned opossum, and Alfred the kingly mouse. Now you will meet Polly the vulture who can be made enormous with a magic spell and flies Tammy and her friends from place to place. This adventure comes to life from Tammy's newly discovered diary that was written in 1883. The original art is enhanced by Duy Truong. As with all the Wurtherington Diary books, this one abounds in developing worthwhile feelings for its young readers. Things like honesty, compassion, and respect for others abound on very page.
Prepare for another rollicking adventure as Tammy and her cute little critters head for the gold fields of California in order to set the space-time continuum back in order. Tammy starts off her day in Rivers Falls Ohio as though it were an ordinary day. On her way to school she discovers that River Falls is a shanty town and The California Gold Company occupies the space where the church once stood. When it rains the roof nearly caves in at her school for lack of maintenance. Of course it is the space-time continuum that has caused all this and Tammy and her friends are soon sent to 1848 to see that the California Gold Rush is set back in order. Was it that gold was not discovered on that fateful day in 1848 or was it that some evil empire rose up because of it?
Tammy is sent back into time by the good sorceress, Lucinda to meet with John Sutter and James Marshall in hopes that gold will be discovered properly. They discover that finding gold is easy and then not so easy when one isn't really looking for it.
Plan to enjoy these wonderful heartfelt characters in a breathless adventure for young and old.
