About the Author

Karen Cushman has a long-standing interest in history. She says, "I wanted to know what ordinary life was like for ordinary young people in other times." Like Lucy, Karen was uprooted from the midwest as a child and transplanted to California. She now lives on Vashon Island, WA. [email protected]

Reviews

"Cushman's heroine is a delightful character, and the historical setting is authentically portrayed. Lucy's story, as the author points out in her end notes, is the story of many pioneer women who exhibited great strength and courage as they helped to settle the West."

School Library Journal, Starred

"The recent Newbery medalist plunks down two more strong-minded women, this time in an 1849 mining camp--a milieu far removed from the Middle Ages of her first novels, but not all that different when it comes to living standards. . . . With a story that is less a period piece than a timeless and richly comic coming-of-age story, Cushman remains on a roll."
