Read full description of the books By the Great Horn Spoon:Gold! That's the lure that drew men by the thousands in 1849 to make the dangerous trip to California. It's what young Jack Flagg of Boston and his unflappable butler Praiseworthy are after as well. But can two such unlikely greenhorns really survive a harrowing sea voyage, bandits, and crazed minersnot to mention a showdown with the dreaded Mountain Ox. It seems impossible. But in Gold Rush California, the impossible was happening every day, as this rollicking, rip-snortin' saga demonstrates in each delightful chapter.
Read information about the authorAs a children's book author Sid Fleischman felt a special obligation to his readers. "The books we enjoy as children stay with us forever -- they have a special impact. Paragraph after paragraph and page after page, the author must deliver his or her best work." With almost 60 books to his credit, some of which have been made into motion pictures, Sid Fleischman can be assured that his work will make a special impact.
Sid Fleischman wrote his books at a huge table cluttered with projects: story ideas, library books, research, letters, notes, pens, pencils, and a computer. He lived in an old-fashioned, two-story house full of creaks and character, and enjoys hearing the sound of the nearby Pacific Ocean.
Fleischman passed away after a battle with cancer on March 17, 2010, the day after his ninetieth birthday.
He was the father of Newbery Medal winning writer and poet Paul Fleischman, author of Joyful Noise; they are the only father and son to receive Newbery awards.
