A First Person Account of American History:
The dangerous journey by ship, train, and mule to the gold fields
of California --
from the memoirs of an 11-year old girl.
After the California Gold Rush ended, there
were already 300,000 people in the golden state. Half of those who
traveled west came by land and half by sea, many to San Francisco.
By 1854, a small exodus of people began to return to the east coast
of America. Most of them had lost out at the gold fields and
returned home for good. Yet a few travelers had another purpose, to
bring their family west to California.
This is Douglas

always research from the real people of
our America through their first person accounts. This brings the
realism of the events to our books, while the illustrations
provide the graphic story of our America's history -- these are
