    1. Fast, fun, and adventurous read I enjoyed the dialect Their heads rattled with schemes and plans Not the first time men have run gold fever on a wisp of bobtailed nothing and the memorable characters, as well as their cleverness and resourcefulness This would be a great book to read aloud with a fourth or fifth grade class.

    2. A delightful story of the old west Gold fever, steam boats, traveling newspaper man, and villians with adorably creative names Young Wiley, his sister and Mom want to settle down, but it seems something always happens and they have to pack up the printing press and move on They decide to go to the town that Grandfather founded, but the town isn t there, nor is Grandfather All they find is a land locked steamboat and two nasty villans Adventure, historical information, and a resolving of Wiley s [...]

    3. With a dad who is an itinerant newspaper man thirteen year old Wiley, his ten year old sister Glorietta and their parents are always on the move Sometimes they are running from townfolk who don t appreciate the dad s brand of reporting, sometimes they are seeking Opportunity This time there is some hope they might actually find a place to settle down, that is if they can manage to out fox some scoundrels.The story is full of humor and action, tall tales and tricks A great book for kids who enjoy [...]

    4. Ok, this just goes to show you that you can judge a book by its cover I borrowed this book from the pioneer library e book and the big reason was that there was an updated cover that was really cool I saw it, I liked it, and I wanted to read it The cover really didn t have much to do with the book, but it was cute So was the book Good writing, funny characters, and just an easy kids read that I liked I hope I can get some of my grandkids to read it sometime.

    5. Typical Sid Fleischman book Almost as good as By The Great Hornspoon As usual, Sid s villains are pretty ornery Definitely not a book to read to little kids I d wait till they re about 10 However, might be useful for teaching American history Steamboat travel, gold rush, buffalos, etc.

    6. This book really has the flavor of Mark Twain It is a story that will flip every twelve year old into the Wild West I looked up Fleischman after I d finished the book, and sure enough he won the Newberry Award in the 80 s or 90 s I can see why.
