A Cabin in Cripple Creek

Ten-year-old Mary Haskins and her family head to Cripple Creek, Colorado, in 1895. Mary rides a "wild burro," witnesses two big fires that threaten to burn down the entire town, and explores railroad cars filled with all kinds of surprises. Her father loses the family savings to a dishonest man, but Mary saves the day by learning to pan for gold. A Cabin in Cripple Creek is a part of the Chilren of Colorado Series, which includes Denver Days and One Golden Summer. Expect more books in this fascinating series that are written at a Third or Fourth Grade level. The interesting plots will, however, appeal to children (and adults) of all ages.
