Publisher Description:

People living in San Francisco during the 1920s and 1930s are fascinated by the project to build the Golden Gate Bridgethe world's longest suspension bridge yet. Will you: Be a designer of the bridge, working to solve the many challenges created by such an enormous project? Work as a crewmember, accepting the dangers of laboring hundreds of feet in the air above the cold, swirling currents of San Francisco Bay? Experience situations taken from real life. YOU CHOOSE what you'll do next. The choices you make will either lead you to successor to failure.

I loved these kinds of choose-your-own-adventure books when I was a kid and incorporating historical events and facts into the stories makes them even more entertaining. Each book focuses on a different event in history, but it's up to the reader to choose the point of view to take. The story will progress for a few pages and then the reader must make a decision about what course they want to take. Then, the reader turns to the page directed in the book and sees what happens based on the choice made. Choose whether to be a civilian, patriot or British soldier during the Battle of Bunker Hill, whether or not to rush for a lifeboat on the Titanic, what job to take as an Irish Immigrant, and much more. On average, each book has about 3 story paths, 35-45 choices, and 15 different endings. This series will help students see historical events in a new, real way and is just plain fun to read. Each book is about 112 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

My son enjoys other books in this series, and this looked like a fun supplement to our study of California state history for next year.
