By The Great Horn Spoon!
- By: Sid Fleischman
- Narrated by: Willard E. Lape, Jr, the Full Cast Family
- Length: 4 hrs and 25 mins
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!

Great Historical Fiction with a fun twist
As a teacher of 4th grade 2nd language learners, reading 2 years below grade level, I found this book to be challenging for them and they were not able to connect to the characters.
