Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Gold! Gold from the American River! These words sparked the California Gold Rush and caused adventure seekers to head west in hopes of discovering gold. Some did strike it rich; others went broke. But they all had the adventure of a lifetime. Lively language, historical photos and illustrations, and primary source accounts help readers understand the highs and lows of life as a miner. Meets Common Core critical thinking standards, and provides strong ties to social studies standards on westward expansion.

Category Description for Adventures on the American Frontier:

Nurture your little history buff's interest with engaging stories about real American heroes and events. I was drawn into the tales of Lewis and Clark and Sacajawea, the builders of the transcontinental railroad, early California and the gold miners, and the brave souls who ventured west on the Oregon Trail. While much was familiar, I learned some new nuggets of America's history. The books have colorful illustrations, interesting sidebars and little notes scattered here and there. In the back of each is a timeline & glossary, additional reading suggestions, online things to explore and a few questions to test your child's reading comprehension which can be used as writing prompts. 32pp, sc. ~ Sara
