Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

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. For ages 8-12. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

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

Format: Taschenbuch
Lucy Whipple is a determined bookworm who surprises her Ma (and us) with her ability to create her own persona and find her niche in the social and natural wilderness of a mining camp. This self-made gal (aged 11-14) clings to her private dream of returning to a stable life and civilization back East, but she has to start from scratch: she changes her odd but given name of California Morning. She is foiled at irregular intervals in her schemes to save up passage money (currency and gold dust) to get back to Massachusetts. She staunchly refuses to let rotten circumstances (and poor mail delivery) rob her of Hope.
Lucky Diggins is a misnomer for a squalid tent village of uncouth miners, whose creative vocabulary abounds in words for liquor, whose social life revolves around saloons, where food and tools are outrageously priced. Little lasting luck is doled out among the eager but selfish inhabitants--until Lucy decides to take her fate and future into her own, pie-making hands. We meet a variety of miners and varmints during these early years of Statehood, when the town suffers from Nature's extremes. Lucy's fatherless family is plunged into the most primitive frontier life, but hardy women of New England stock make their own destiny. Lucy encounters her first Black man, witnesses death, murder, fire, a frontier "trial" and faces that worst of all fates--life without books!
This story has many amusing teenage comments, yet offers tender passages. There is much historically accurate information (though Cushman does not refer to Placer mining per se). BALLAD is a great introduction to Gold Rush studies which will also interest boys.

Kid's view: It has some sad parts, but that is life. I think Lucy is very strong and trys to do what she says she will do. I think it is weird how the kids have names that are places. Lucy is not racist at all. She does not want her Mom to get married. Mom's view: Lucy Whipple is a young girl living in hard, rustic times. I like the way it is written, it makes me feel as though I am there and know these people. Never before have I read a book where young girls hunt, which of course they did, and do. Last, I enjoyed some of the words used, like "Lucky Diggins" is where they live, and "Dang Diggety" - it reminds me of my Dad's ol' Oklahoma expression, "Dag Nabbit", so I know they really used funny expressions like this from out West!!

Von Ein Kunde am 10. Juni 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
Before I read this book, I thought that people would go West and look in the dirt, and there would be a gigantic gold nugget just laying there. I also thought people would just go West to find Gold, and I never once thought people came to do anything else besides look for gold. Boy was I wrong. Karen Cushman shows what it was really like. Most books just talk about finding gold, but Lucy and Karen, together, show that that wasn't the only thing on people's minds. Karen Cushman is such a talented writer, I can't say enough about her. I loved "The Midwife's Apprentice", and "Catherine, Called Birdy", is as great as the other two so far. I couldn't put any of them down. Karen Cushman is a great author, and "The Ballad of Lucy Whipple" is her best yet.

This is a story to make you laugh and cry and count your blessing, while wishing their was still a frontier to conquer. Karen Cushman has really explored the soul of Lucky Diggins and the spirit of the pioneer. I couldn't help but admire the spirit of Lucy's mother and some of the colourful metaphors she uses. "Some time minds are like diapers and need changing." This is a great book to read with your children, even my boy children liked it. Don't let them say they don't want to read it because its about a girl and there is no "action" in it. Lots happens, even though no one battles aliens. We loved the Little House Books and this is a great addition to the " pioneer genre". Its not as sweet but more filling.

Von Karen am 15. Juli 2000
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.

This book is especially fun to read this year, the 150th anniversary of the Calif. Gold Rush. I've read it to my 8 year-old daughter, who loved every page and is sad that it's over. We were both moved to tears several times, and had good conversations about family, and about what it must have been like then. Cushman weaves great sagas set in other times, but the themes are very relevant--her characters are well developed and sympathetic. I wish there were more--we've already read Catherine Called Birdy, but Lucy is my favorite! More!
