About this title


Mixing fictional and historical characters, a sweeping historical epic recalls the birth of the state of California. Original.

From School Library Journal:

Holland uses the natural intrigue of history, the charm of romance, the promise of the West, the drive of Manifest Destiny, colorful historical figures, and several ingeniously developed fictional characters to weave a thrilling story of the race for settlement and the ultimate control of California. Catherine Reilly, a widow, survives to earn respect in a man's world on the frontier. Her life is interwoven with such American heroes as Kit Carson, John C. Fremont, John Sutter, John Bidwell, and Don Mariano Vallejo. Major historical events such as the Kelsey-Bidwell-Bartleson Crossing of the Great Basin and the Sierra in 1841, the Fremont and Carson Winter Crossing in 1844, and the Bear Flag Revolt of 1846, form the backdrop for Cat's story. A valuable "note" explains the historical events, persons, and any alterations Holland has made in them within the story. Highly desirable as supplementary reading in American Civilization classes.
