1st ed.
This series presents exciting historical novels that show the diversity and strength of our American culture. Each volume concludes with a short "Historical Postscript" that tells more about the real people depicted in the story, provides valuable background information on the era described, and lists other books on the subject suitable for young readers. Each book is reviewed for accuracy by a historical expert.

It's 1850 in the rough-and-tumble gold mining hills northeast of San Francisco, where young David and Celia Taylor help their family run a dining hall for prospectors. Everyone is focused on the debate over California's entrance into the Union. The struggle is especially important to their friend Georgie . . . a boy who was born into slavery.
