    I had fun reading this with a 4th grade class I subbed for. The kids really liked it and it was an entertaining way for them to learn some Gold Rush history.

    Great book for 4th graders to read. Fun to have audio version with authentic voices.

    The book is great as it is not as a read out loud

    Probably would work well for 'tween male reluctant readers. Could also be read aloud, a bit at a time, by a social studies teacher. I live near 'Hangtown' (now Placerville) and other mining towns, and still I learned a lot. I see in the search results that there are teaching guides available - if I were to include this in my curriculum I'd definitely pick up one of those, too, as there was a lot of detail in the history as for instance road agents, Long Toms, tempting people to come to an auction with free butter (to slice and eat there like popcorn on a bar), ratlines on a ship, etc. etc.

    But primarily it's a truly rollicking adventure, with just enough heart to keep a reader engaged in the characters while s/he turns the pages wondering how they're going to get out of this scrape and wondering what adventure they'll experience next.

    I've been reading this book aloud to my 9 yo ds. It is a rollicking good read! Two adventurers head from Boston to California to make their fortune during the Gold Rush. Their adventures start as their boat travels around the tip of South America. The excitement continues as they finally make it to California to search for gold. Tension abounds with evil characters like Cut-Eye Higgins and natural dangers in the form of grizzly bears. Each chapter is exciting, funny and clever! If you enjoy adventure, humor, historical fiction and tall tales, then this book is for you! The ultimate critic of boring books, my ds, loves it!

    I loved it, it is very funny, and the movie was even funnier, but I loved all the things that happened, it was a very funny book
  • (5/5)
    I enjoyed the "full cast" audio book very much. I have no idea if it appeals to children, but I would think so. Fairly fast moving and funny. I was suprised it was written back in 1963 (except one of the characters takes up smoking - you wouldn't see that today!)

    Fast moving adventure book for children, full of historical and geographical detail.
  • (5/5)
    The movie version of this book is Disney's Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin, very enjoyable, as is the book!

    My children and I enjoyed this tale. The story of a young man in the Gold Rush era. Romanticized, but lots of fun and plenty of facts too. More interesting to us because one of our ancestors came to California around the Great Horn Spoon as well.
