California, 1849. The gold rush is on. Erika Nagy and her family just moved to California to pan for gold. They don't have any luck. So, without gold they can't pay the rent. Now Erika has to work for their mean landlord Hart Latham. Will Erika and her family be able to pay the rent on time? To find out, read Black Water Creek by Deborah Kent.

I recommend this book to people who love horses. I also recommend this book for
