Search Of Klondike Gold
Lynda Wilson

Roussan Publishers

Jump ahead to a new series from Roussan, The Virtual Zone, introduced with first-time author Lynda Wilson’s In Search of Klondike Gold ($5.95, ages eight to twelve). Mr. Sanderson, the school custodian, has a special computer which sends Michael and Simon forward to the Virtual Zone where they experience Canada’s Gold Rush. What better way to learn about history than by actually being there? A glossary helps kids (and adults) become acquainted with the terms used by the Klondikers. Watch for more adventures with Mr. Sanderson in this series. mRb
