It's 1849 in the rip-roaring tent-city of Lucky Diggins, California, and 12-year-old Lucy misses Massachusetts and her grandparents and apple pandowdy with sweet yellow cream.

Instead of reading her beloved library books, now Lucy must toil in her mother’s rough-and-tumble boardinghouse. Instead of her dainty New England school chums, now Lucy’s friends are Old West characters like Snowshoe Ballou (biggest feet in the whole Sierra). How can Lucy find happiness in California when all she wants is to escape the place? Flavorfully written (with the slightest touch of salty language) by a Newbery-winning novelist, the book combats the myth of the all-male goldfields.
