Reviews about Girl in the Gold Camp: A True Account of an Alaska Adventure, 1909-1910 (3):
Shazel
If you are a history buff, interested in Alaska or gold mining you have to read this. The author did a great job of portraying life as a young girl during this period of time. There are also many fascinating scenes regarding mining. People were truly tougher back then.
Wizer
This young 16 year old girl kept a diary while she was in the Alaskan gold camp with her aunt and two uncles. The book is her words as she describes every day life of her family and friends. Included are photos of the people she writes about and footnotes to clarify information where needed. She describes her everyday experiences her family had. You really get to know her family and what it was like in the gold fields in 1909. She had many varied adventures.
