Pedro’s Pan: A Gold Rush Story

Pan narrates a fun fictional tale that is inspired by the true story of Prospector Felix Pedro during the Gold Rush. Pan tells of his adventures with Pedro. Pan finds out he is not just useful for sifting for gold but also for sledding down a snowy hill, berry picking, cooking over a campfire as well as keeping Pedro shaded from the sun and rain. Pan also learns how to tell fools gold from real gold. Working together, Pan and Pedro will strike gold!
This simply-written book is a fun way to incorporate history and real-life facts. In the back of the book includes a short bibliography of the real Felix Pedro, as well as tips on how to pan for gold and facts about gold. This book makes learning about history fun and helps gets readers excited to learn more about the past of America and the impact it has on us today.
