Kurzbeschreibung

Dear Gram and Grampop,
Please do not address yours truly as California anymore, California Morning Whipple being a foolish name for a duck much less a girl. I call myself Lucy now. I cannot hate California and be California. I know you will understand.

California doesn't suit Lucy Whipple -- not the name, not the place. But moving out West to Lucky Diggins, California, was her mama's dream-come-true. And now her brother, Butte, and sisters, Prairie and Sierra, seem to be Westerners at heart, too. For Lucy, Lucky Diggins is hardly a town at all -- just a bunch of ramshackle tents and tobacco-spitting miners. Even the gold her mama claimed was just lying around in the fields isn't panning out. Worst of all, there's no lending library! Dag diggety!

So Lucy vows to be plain miserable until she can hightail it back East where she belongs. But Lucy California Morning Whipple may be in for a surprise -- because home is a lot closer than she thinks...

When California Morning Whipple's widowed mother uproots her family from their comfortable Massachusetts environs and moves them to a rough mining camp called Lucky Diggins in the Sierras, California Morning resents the upheaval. Desperately wanting to control something in her own life, she decides to be called Lucy, and as Lucy she grows and changes in her strange and challenging new environment. Here Karen Cushman helps the American Gold Rush spring to colorful life, just as she did for medieval England in her previous two books, Catherine, Called Birdy and The Midwife's Apprentice, which won Newbery Honor status and a Newbery Medal respectively.

Pressestimmen

"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."

Kirkus Reviews with Pointers

Einleitungssatz
"Mama" I said, "that gold you claimed is lying in the fields around here must be hidden by all the lizards, dead leaves, and mule droppings, for I can't see a thing worth picking up and taking home" I did not say it out loud, but I sorely wanted to, for I was sad, mad, and feeling bad. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

3.0 von 5 Sternen Maybe it's just me..... 15. Juli 2000
Von Karen
Format:Taschenbuch
Maybe I just prefer the Middle Ages to the California Gold Rush. Maybe's it's just that all the descriptions of dust, bad food, and outdoor toileting facilities reminded me of my miserable summer camp in the Sierras. I enjoyed her previous two books so very much, that I couldn't believe how hard it was to get through this one. In her medieval books, the story is compelling and the historical details feel necessary; I felt this book's plot was merely an excuse for lots of miner slang and unpleasant personal hygeine details. Those things are interesting in themselves, but are available in history books and primary sources, even for children. This felt more like a history lesson and less like a novel than any of her previous work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tear-Jerker and Laugh-Jerker Book! 7. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This has to be one of the best books I have ever read. Cushman is an amazing author and this is one of her best works. You never know what's going to happen next. This book made me cry, laugh, and realize that I should count my blessings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen CUSHMAN'S THIRD PAGE-TURNER 10. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Whenever someone asks me to recommend a good childrens' book, I always mention all three of Cushman's. (This one, Midwife's Apprentice, and Catherine, Called Birdy.) All three are written in diary form, with the main characters putting down their experiences and feelings. By the time you finish, you'll feel like the main character has become one of your best friends, and you'll be sad to say goodby.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An exelent, realisic read 6. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This a wonderfully realistic book about a girl with values, a girls we can all relate to some time or another. I like this book because, mainly, of the charectors and how real it seems. I'ts almost like you are there in the gold rush with Lucy, saving up gold in a pickle crock and trying to read Ivanhoe in between washing the dishes and making dinner for a tent full of dirty men trying to strike it rich. This is good book for anyone who likes realistic fiction, and a supurb heroine who wants to go back east.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An all-time favorite 6. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
"The Ballad Of Lucy Whipple" is one of my all-time favorite books. The book itself was well-written; Cushman has a habit of making all the characters come to life. I enjoyed some fo the terms that the miners used such as "worried as a duck in the dester" and "Dag diggety". I read this book over and over, and I reccomend you read it, too....go out and buy it, faster than you can spit and holler howdy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Karen Cushman has done it again 13. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
and I wish she had come along earlier. (I'm 19 so I'm a little out of the age bracket.) I read my 10-year-old sister's copy of 'Lucy Whipple' when I went home for Christmas. In the tradition if 'Catherine, Called Birdy' (I am pleased to say that I introduced my mother and sisters to this fine book) and 'The Midwife's Apprentice' comes another engaging heroine. Lucy Whipple is no Spice Girl: she is, instead, a realistic girl with real emotions and a good role model for the girls of today.
