In a round about way from Kentucky to the 1849 California gold rush, this traveling adventure, seen through the eyes of a free thinking teen, has twists, turns, friendships, hardships, & characters (From low life to heroic). Using his extensive research on the subject, Author RL Taylor wove together a story that reads as that of a memoir. Winner of the 1959 Pulitzer. Had an MGM ABC TV series @ one time & in the movie Guns of Diablo, a young Kurt Russel plays Jamie McPheeters along with cast members Charles Bronson & Susan Oliver. (With little resemblance of book)
