I use this book for our study of the California Gold Rush. The students in my class, including the girls, are really enjoying it (we are reading it now). As we read, they search for figurative language (oodles of it!), examples of Praiseworthy's cleverness, nicknames, and Praiseworthy's character traits/evidence of such (I have made it into a contest). I find the book to be very enjoyable and it provides lots of good information about the California Gold Rush in a fun format.
