Bandit's Moon (98 Edition)by Sid Fleischman
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
After a narrow escape from the nasty O. O. Mary's clutches, Annyrose ventures forth to find her long-lost brother Lank in gold-digging territory. But the journey is rough, bandits and fiends waiting for the traveler at every bend. Soon Annyrose runs into Joaquin Marieta, legendary bandit of the Gold Rush.
This complete disaster, however, soon appears to be no less than a blessing for both! They can help each other out: Annyrose can teach Joaquin how to read so he will know where danger lies, and in turn he can make sure she's safe and fed. But in a time when corruption and greed are running wild, will their friendship be more than fool's gold?
A Mexican bandit and an orphan girl join forces during the California Gold Rush; PW's starred review said, "Fueled by brisk dialogue and lively descriptions, the story moves as swiftly as a whitewater stream, carrying readers along for an exhilarating ride". Ages 9-12.
