    This book is about how one small change can make a big difference. One kid went down to a river and found a gold nugget. He tried to keep it a secret but people find out and start the world famous California gold rush. This book is very cool and i would recommend this to all of my friends for how great of a read it is.

    The title of the book I just read was The California Gold Rush. The author of the book is May McNeer. I have not finished the yet but so far I really like the book. I like it because it tells me a lot about what the people that were mining in California in 1849 went through. It also told me about how big it was around the world. The quote for this book was “Now, gents, since we ain’t got no ladies, we got to have a ball without ‘em.” My favorite character is James Marshall I liked him because he The title of the book I just read was The California Gold Rush.

My least favorite character was the store owner because he painted rocks and said that it was pure gold.

    This Landmark Series book stood up to its expectations in presenting information about the CA Gold Rush and all the details that come from that time period. It adequately describes the desire for striking it rich along with the heartache that many experienced when they lost it all. This book would be a good addition to any classroom library for extra reading about early CA history.
