WEST WE GO

14-year old Tomas was an orphan facing the long trek to California in the decisive of 1849 when all the country turned face towards California and gold. Told with fine feeling for visual, dramatic detail, this is a good story of a lone wagon captained by a widow whose humanity impels her to pick up strays. Convincing background, fresh handling of a setting that had become hackneyed, this has good characterization, humor, adventure, better than average writing, compelling interest.
