Great history in a nutshell (even for adults!)
Reviewed in the United States on March 22, 2018
Basically knowing nothing about California's history, I found this excellent children's book to be well-written, fun to read, and detailed enough to easily grasp the big picture without getting bogged down in details. Women's contributions to California's burgeoning success are included, and while the tenor of the book is upbeat and positive, the author does not overlook the injustice and poor treatment given to native peoples and non-European immigrants. A great springboard to delve deeper into California's fascinating story.
