The California Gold Rush

The California Gold Rush is a title in the Interactive History Adventure series from Capstone. Follow the journey of a young New Englander as he tries to strike it rich in the gold fields of California. This book allows you to choose which story you want to read, making these books great for readers with short attention spans as they can read as few as 10 or 15 pages to get a complete story or read the entire book. The first choice to make is how to travel: overland, or by sea. If by land, which route do you choose and how what group do you go with? If by sea, do you cross at Panama and risk getting cholera or do you sail around South America? Once (if) you arrive in California, where do you start to look, or do you choose to become a shopkeeper? This exciting book will teach readers about what the gold rush was really like - from how pioneers felt as they neared Chimney Rock to what it was like to get cholera or scurvy, or brave the harsh waters of the southern ocean. The books in this series are known for their realism and excellent research because each book is reviewed by an expert in the field. Short of travelling the Oregon-California trail in a wagon yourself, there is no better way to experience the struggles and hard choices gold seekers faced. Because of how realistic these books are, there are several stories that end in the death (sometimes violent) of the adventurer. Death is always portrayed in these books in as realistic a manner as possible from the perspective of the character so that readers can learn how the people of the time thought. These books are especially great for kids in 3-7th grades, although older kids have been known to enjoy them too. The reading level on these books is 3-4th grade.
