Descrição

In the summer of 1849, Lucy Whipple’s mother packs up her household and her two young children, and leaves their home in Massachusetts for the gold fields of California.

Moving is the last thing the outspoken twelve-year-old, Lucy, wants to do. Reaching California, the Whipples set up a crude boardinghouse, and Lucy is put to work washing, cleaning, and baking pies in the rough mining town of Lucky Diggins. There are no books, no school—nothing but dust and drunken miners. With each day, the homesick Lucy is more and more determined to take life into her own hands and return to New England.

The Ballad of Lucy Whipple is her firsthand account of her struggles in a rough and tumble land. Newbery Award-winning author Karen Cushman paints a vivid picture of life in the gold fields. Dispelling the idea that only men went there to seek their fortune, Cushman focuses on the women and families who created homes and towns from a harsh landscape.

  • (4/5)
    This book is a great book for an ELL young girl to read, because it is very interesting and is easy to read. Even though it is easy to read it is a chapter book, so this will keep the student busy for a little while. I would put this under my independent reading for girls. I don't think guys would be very interested in this book.

    I loved this book. It is the story of a girl who loves books and starts a library when she grows up in her little gold-mining town. I am never disappointed with Karen Cushman. She truly delivers!
  • (5/5)
    I love Karen Cushman's books and this is no exception. The character is relateable and the story is fun to read. This could be used in curriculum about the California Gold Rush and settling the American West.

    A great story about a girl who moves to California with her family during the infamous Gold Rush.
