The California Gold Rush

There’s a whole series of You Choose™ books by Capstone Press.   This interactive history adventure, The California Gold Rush, is written by Elizabeth Raum and it follows your adventures through gold fever in 1849.  Similar to the Choose Your Own Adventure® format, this book is nonfiction, complete with timeline, glossary and follow-up suggestions.

My exciting historical adventure began by taking a ship via the Panama shortcut to California, but you might choose to go all the way around South America or perhaps by land instead.  Every choice has a historical consequence, some of which are life and death. After your adventure, be sure to read the last chapter, which gives wrap-up information and additional explanations.
