Hey, prospectors! How'd you like to live in Hangtown, Bedbug, or Murderer's Gulch? Learn about these mining camps, the forty-niners, and the California gold rush in What Was the Gold Rush?
I'm so pleased to be the author of one of the first four titles in Grosset & Dunlap's new What Was chapter book series, which is a spin-off of their popular Who Was biography series. Illustrated throughout, plus 16 pages of photos, 103 pages including two timelines.
