The Secret Valley is set during the California Gold Rush, and relates the adventures of the Davis family (and their cat, Nugget) as they travel from Missouri by covered wagon to seek their fortune in the golden fields of California. The journey is difficult, with rivers, mountains, and prairies to cross, and regular encounters with Indians.
Once they reach California, they make friends and begin their search for gold. They learn that prospecting is hard work, and there is no guarantee of success.
In the end, the Davis family does not strike it rich in a monetary sense, but they find they have what they truly want - a new home in a beautiful new land.
Highly recommended, along with anything else written by Clyde Bulla.
"In this book, Frank and Ellen travel to California during the time of the Gold Rush, hoping to get rich. All they find is one nugget of gold and some gold dust. Their friend, Father John, suggests a place called Secret Valley, which has gold everywhere. He gives them a map of this place, and after a while, they go to Secret Valley. They do not get rich by gold but do find what they are looking for: a garden, a nice house, and a place to raise sheep and goats. I think you should get this book."
