By the Great Horn Spoon! A Gold Rush Adventure
by Sid Fleischman



When Jack's aunt loses her much-loved mansion and is desperate for money to pay her creditors, Jack and the butler go west to strike it rich and help her.

This tale of love and adventure is set during the Gold Rush, with travel by sea and land, many different mishaps en route, and a cast of memorable characters.

Kids will get a sense of the Old West and the history of the Gold Rush in this popular classic historical fiction title that was first published several decades ago but still holds kids attention! School Library Journal promises that readers are "in for a treat" with this story that's "brimming with riveting adventure."
