From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-One day in the life of Anisett Lundberg in California's gold mining region in 1851 involves a varied cast of characters representative of those who couldn't resist the lure of that lucky lode. The girl's mother, a strong and capable widow, runs a sort of catering service to support her daughter and her son, Colin. Anisett and her mother prepare meals in the early morning and, with Colin aboard the mule wagon, spend the remainder of each day riding from camp to camp delivering them, arriving home in time to rest briefly before beginning the work again. On this fateful day, an unlucky, near-crazed and dangerous miner overhears Anisett asking someone whether the rock she has found could be gold; he decides to hold her and her family at gunpoint until he discovers where the rock was found. Though the writing is pedestrian at times, the view of the gold-rush culture highlights the courage of those who were a part of it. Though not every character is well developed, this entry in the series helps readers perceive the participants in the gold rush, including the women as individuals.
