Who’s craving adventure and travel to faraway places right now? The best literature does just that: takes us somewhere new, inspires us to live beyond boundaries, and teaches us about the human experience, place, and history.

This is what children’s and YA author Avi’s new historical adventure, Gold Rush Girl, delivers to your favorite arm chair, AND what you can deliver to your students with our new Curriculum Connections curated to accompany this book. Support your students in following 13-year-old Tory, as she trades her sheltered life of comfort in mid-1800s New England for the muddied encampments of San Francisco during the California Gold Rush.
