" Good overview of the Gold Rush for young readers. Touches on who really got rich, who got screwed over (the Native Indian tribes, Chinese immigrants, victims of scams, etc), ow the gold rush laid the framework for the state of California.Lots of pictures. Kids really got into it and it lead to more in-depth questions. " said.

"What was the Gold Rush by Joan Holub was a great non fiction book with a lot of facts. I was a small book that is personally one of my favorite books of all time. While reading more and more questions were coming through my head and then the questions got answered on the next page. One of the best books I have ever read.

The gold rush hit California in the 1800s and it made a huge impact on the United States. People from the eastern part of the U.S. Are coming to the west hoping to strike gold. They worked 16 hour days and they make around 5 to 30$ a day. Honestly I don't think that I could handle that. But, they were so desperate to strike rich they would do anything for it. Read the rest to get all of the details.

I recommend this book to people who like quick reads but still get a lot out of the book. This book was a real page turner.

"{My Thoughts} – The Gold Rush was an important time period that had taken place in 1848. It helped to shape the United States into much of what it is today. This book teaches the reader many of the significant events that had occurred from 1799-1914. The event that is most focused on is the Gold Rush, but because of the Gold Rush so many other important events had taken place.

When you think about the Gold Rush you think of all the people that had rushed to California to mine Gold. That isn’t the only location in which gold mining had taken place. It also isn’t the only job that had been available at the time. It is true that finding gold wasn’t an easy task and that many people had died trying, but that didn’t stop them from trying. There were also those individual’s that had found ways to make a living even though they didn’t want to mine gold.

Many of the bushinesses that had begun during the events of the Gold Rush are still around today. It was interesting to learn that so many of them that we know of now were created back then and that they’s survived all those years.

I love reading about and learning history. It’s one of my favorite subjects. I enjoy being able to learn more about subjects that interest me and subjects that I didn’t otherwise know much about. I think that this book is wonderful for kids and that it could easily be used as a summary of events should a parent or teacher want to quiz a child on what they learned. It can also be a nice read for a child just enjoys learning facts about the country in which we live in. Either way it’s nicely written and extremely informative.
