The Gold Rush

The Gold Rush
In 1848 America was changed forever by the discovery of gold in California. It led to the growth of cities like San Francisco, altered the way Americans thought about earning money, and brought thousands of fortune-seekers to the West. In this book, readers explore the fascinating story of the gold rush in terms of both its causes and effects. They also gain a more personal view of this period in American history, journeying alongside a New York farmer, William Swain, as he travels west to find gold. Presented in the style of a graphic novel, Swain’s adventures are sure to excite readers. Detailed drawings and easy-to-follow text ensure accessibility to even the most reluctant readers.

Collection Review: A Graphic History of the American West
“Using a graphic-novel format, this series recounts key events in the dramatic history of the American West. While Lewis and Clark, Alamo, and Little Bighorn provide information about well-known individuals (Sacagawea, General Custer, et al), Pony Express, Gold Rush, and Oregon Trail focus on lesser-known figures. Packed with well-rendered, colorful drawings, the stories are brimming with action. . .”
