Walk on Earth a Stranger

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home -- until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her.

Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? This first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times-bestselling author Rae Carson takes readers on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush era America.

"Lee, as she calls herself, is a smart, feisty, and likable protagonist who encounters all the hardships one would expect on the arduous journey West — illness, injury, hunger, exposure to extreme weather, and buffalo stampedes. All the while, she knows her uncle will stop at nothing to hunt her down....The time period rings true through Carson's skillful use of language and attention to detail." — Madeline J. Bryant, School Library Journal
