Author: Bertha Schwartz
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: December 1, 2018
Genre: Middle Grade Historical Fiction
It’s 1849, and when Sarah’s papa and brother strike out for gold, she is stuck at home to help take care of the family and farm. This task quickly turns dangerous as the Gold Rush rises in frenzy around them. Neighbors abandon their livestock and the family must fend off half-started miners ready to steal everything they have. Sarah decides to turn her circumstances into a business—feeding the miners in exchange for gold and labor.
Sarah’s ingenuity and leadership are tested as she faces thieves, mysteries, and violent miners. Trouble closes in on all sides, and Sarah must make tough decisions on her own.
Soon Sarah learns that true treasure is not always gold, and that the greatest adventures can happen without even leaving home.

“Something’s sure going on!” exclaimed David. As they neared Katy’s Junction, more riders and wagons passed them. Everyone seemed to be in a big hurry.
“Sarah,” said Pa. “Let me see that list again.”
Sarah quickly pulled out the list. She felt uneasy as three more riders passed. What would they find at Katy’s Junction? News of war?
Pa handed the list back. “Let’s get double of everything. If war broke out, we might not be able to get supplies later.”
A crowd had gathered in front of Stan’s Mercantile. Men were talking excitedly. Sarah felt another shiver of fear. What was going on?
Soon, another rider caught up with them. “Hey, Bill!” David called to their neighbor as he was about to pass them. “What’s going on?”
“Gold!” shouted Bill Martin, hardly slowing down. “They found gold just south of here. Huge nuggets of it!”
