One of Newbery Medalist Sid Fleischman's most beloved books, this rip-snortin' saga of a young man and his butler bound for California during the great Gold Rush was just made to be read by a full cast. Our collection of coots, codgers, geezers, and outlaws will have you laughing out loud...when you're not holding your breath in suspense!

This was a fantastic story that our entire family (boys 12, 9, 8, and 6) enjoyed on a road trip. I would definitely recommend it . . . action-packed and wonderful characters.
